we wake up to rain
the sound of it drowning out
the drip of the coffee machine
set on a timer.

his hair is dishevelled
the sweat from a humid night
dried and stained our skin
begging to be shed.

cats swarmed my feet
alerted by the sound
of cans of food
being opened and emptied.

i dropped him off
outside the front door of his office
with a departure kiss
to last all day.

the smell of sweat,
the taste of coffee,
the warmth of purring cats,
the sensation of a dry kiss

last all day
until our routine together
continues into the night
and next day.
