Poem 5: Breakfast in Bed

Breakfast in Bed

Hey baby

I’ll be right back
I’m going to the corner store to pick up a few things


Girl, I’m going to make you breakfast in bed
I’m talking about french toast with brown sugar, cinnamon, and pecans

Then, I’m going to fix you an omelet just the way you like it
with fresh tomatoes, green peppers, ham, and cheese

Finally, I’m going to buy a big ol' bag of oranges and squeeze all of them by hand to make you a fresh pitcher of orange juice


Just because I love you, baby

Really, why?


You mind if I go to the Wizards game tonight with Tyrone and Rob?
I hear that Agent “O” is back on the court!

I can! Thanks, baby

Come on and get dressed, girl. I’m taking you OUT to breakfast.
