  • She sits on the couch in the morning.

    Ignoring the muted news on TV screen.

    The scent of her shampoo on the wet hair blends with the coffee freshly made, blowing in the air.

    She smiles with her mouth corner, wearing a shirt and panties, separating her things to leave to work.
    She sings something in a quiet voice. He puts everything in the backpack.

    And the morning light still vibrates in the air with the frenzy of the love they just did. Coffee and sugar moisturizes their morning ritual.
    Good morning.

    Coffee with a few words. Just unnecessary. Their communication dispenses the words. Hoping not to wake the next door neighbors. The shower waits opened for the next bath. And to the hell with the shower opened.

    The dog greets the couple the wall next to the then in full lungs. It senses their happiness bubbling like a can of soda recently opened. Maybe he wanted to participate. Freaky dog…

    And all the muscles and tendons tremble randomly; trying to photograph the previous minutes.

    Minutes when they sleep and woke embraced, awakened by the golden sun, making love with the windows open to get the fresh wind in the morning, with white curtains breathing.

    Making love to start the day, just for good luck. Good morning.

    And the look of the cat stuck on top of the bedside table illustrates its newest trauma. He is frozen. He did not understand anything. (or did he?)

    So wearing fresh clean clothes, shaved and showered he departs. Gets a coffee flavored kiss. Squeezes her with his whole body. Now mint coffee flavored kiss. And a little fluoride.

    He calls her delicious already feeling homesick. One more kiss while moving toward the door. She holds him, preventing him from leaving. "Stay with me a little more. Just a moment longer ..."

    What a beautiful morning. What a lucky day, right foot.

    Good morning.
