life interrupted

there you are
half asleep
but mightily enjoying
that first hot cup of coffee
so necessary to jumpstart the day

and then a sudden shrilling
demands your full attention
your coffee reluctantly abandoned
as you rise to answer the summons
of the phone

by the time you are through
with the conversation that interrupted
your enjoyment of the morning
your coffee sits reproachful
cold and uninviting

the same so easily applies
to the larger scale of life
there you are
comfortable
enjoying who you are
enjoying what you do

then a sudden blow you can’t ignore
wrenches you and sends you spinning
away from everyday
a shattering dislocation
you are reeling
you are lost

by the time you recover
(assuming that you do)
and find your life again
it too is cold and uninviting
