Some people age gracefully. Some age on a bumpy road. You know age has set in when your body starts cracking, popping, and aching in places it never had before.

Broken coffeemaker, NYC, 11/21/07 – 1 of 4 (Photo credit: goodrob13)

morning comes
crawl out of bed
muscles ache
bones pop
scratch this
scratch that
rub eyes
stretch
turn coffee pot on
visit the bathroom
flip news on
pour cup of coffee

then
half an hour to an hour later
almost ready
to open eyes all the way
to check
facebook
meetme
myspace
twitter
datehookup

I believe
age has set in
as days become routine
a creature of habit
left alone for too long
and it may go bang
