on second thought

This is the first line,
where I say the sun has risen
in its usual place
at its usual time.

This is the fifth line,
where I drink my afternoon coffee
and my sleepy eyes
know just where to hide.

This is the ninth line,
where I’ll let you know just this once
that sometimes I miss–
well, never mind.
