5:30 A.M To Rise


from the early daybreak of the sun rays in circular motion

beating down on every rooftop

multi colored shingles

that fade over time

to the alarm clock

going off at 5:30 a.m. every morning

toss the sheet to rise!

fresh start to a new day

crews fill in the empty parking spaces

fresh coffee grounds brewing

box trucks and sprinters being loaded up

take the commute of

passing buildings and city streets

a different install everyday on homeowners grounds

prep the day that lays ahead

the territory of weather

that always comes with every job

battle the heat,rain and cold

shoveling snow

fingers numb to the bone

sweat coursing down your face

quench the cold water

trickling down the back of your throat

send the “first man up”

setting safety

rooftop anchors away

bringing that kw in

adding up every single day

glass sea of panels laid

reflections of a rolling sky

My insides are to sweet

You wonder how I taste

(I do)


How bad do you want to taste

(Let me sink my teeth deep)

Go ahead and break my skin!

(O darling, you taste like I knew you would)


Come in for another bite

Feel your jaw knolling at my flesh

(O, yes!)

Never forget

How I taste

Carry me

Pour running water to clean my open wounds

(Let us lay)

Bring me closer to you

So that I may heal
