Pleasantly Derailed

       Rain falling on the soundtrack of my world
          spit spat
       While the sun shines outside.

       Sometimes I drive a gravel road
          scritch crunch
       Potholes, dust and washboards take skill.

       I read novels when I can
          plop flip
       If I am too tired, I fall asleep.

       If you wake me, I won’t fall asleep again
          huh? ohh
       If you don’t, it’s possible I’m pretending.

       The dark before dawn starts my day
          sit up
       My expectations are often pleasantly derailed.
