I have trouble waking up
Despite the clanging bells and sirens
Used to alarm me from my sleep.
So I tried a gentle sunrise call
Of recorded ducks
But they, too, were incorporated into dream.
Now here I am to get report from
Worn as putrid perfume.
Losing fifteen minutes' time
Drinking coffee at the time clock.
But I do not care, because when I heard the quacks
I started flying and remain
Rested, lighter than air.
