that I am out of sugar?
I decided not to, and instead checked the car
but there weren't any issues.
Clocks tick and tock,
play I Spy with me in the foyer.
There's a poetry book I got for free from a co-worker,
I placed it on some other nook
and cranny, just as how I misplaced my keys
for seven and a half minutes this morning.
I chugged a cuppa coffee
and pretended to vacuum.
When that metal box rattles and
the basketball buzzer goes on the fritz,
you know where I'll be.
