Ease Is Set to Stun

Ease Is Set to Stun

You stare
blankly
think twice before you move

Right or left
the room will spin with you
change perspective

The thin wire
looped inside the toaster slot
burns red hot

You shuffle
round the room
like you’re practicing the two step

Bend at the knees
to lift a thought
above your eyebrows

Stir the cream
until the coffee is the kind of brown
you’d paint your walls

The sun, the bread
your blood pressure
is set to rise

The moment after
the one you take
before you plug into the day
