Morning Morganstown……………….


Beep

Beep

Beep……………..BEEP ………………..BEEEEEEEPPPPPPPPPP

Open one eye, stretch – full body, tip to toe, every muscle taut, stretch

Yawn, face splitting, eye watering yawn, yaay

Yeeuch – face full of fish breath, fist fumbling for phone

BEEP BEEP BEEP

Slam the snooze button, silence, sleep

Both eyes open, coil, leap and………………………………..land

 Aaargh – awake now            Get off me ……………….and sleep

BEEP BEEP BEEP BEEPBEEP BEEP

Noooooooooooooo – C**p, overslept, leap out of bed, catch foot in duvet, thud, both knees hit hard wooden floor

One neat movement, bed to floor, paws touch the ground only to spring again

Bathroom, mirror, face, despair, face despair…………water. steam, obliterate the image

Water – ssssttttt – flick paws in disgust, back away

3rd step from the top, stretch out, relax, perfect spot for a spot of pre- prandial snooze……………………………………..snooze

meaaaowwwwwwwwwwwwwwww

B*******, B************* cat, grab handrail, breathe

look down at ladder – neat line of white on black from knee to ankle – s****, s******

Look down at paw, admire the gleaming white against the black, puurfection

Downstairs

Downstairs

Grab bowl, shake box, empty, empty bowl

EMPTY BOWL, meoww, MEoww, MEOnowww, NOWWWWWW

C****, clock, car keys, quick

C*****, cat flap – out – cat flap – in

Gather belongings, bag, book, boxes – time to boogie

Bus

And breathe……………………………..

Bed.
