a morning like all others
a phrase which must tempt nature
to set that morning apart

the glaze on that first doughnut
oh, its circlet of drips
not unlike tears of virgins
melts into your coffee

ave, ave maria

your mud flaps set to throbbing
by the idling engine
a forklift poised to proffer
one half-ton of diapers

a piece of second doughnut
falls into your coffee
as you stand, hand over heart
and see her for the first time

ave, ave maria

a dark robe wrapped around her
and her pious face
above her blessed girdle
could a sign be clearer

a morning like no other
a phrase which must tempt nature
to give that morning a mate
