Morning Fast

It’s usually not hard to wait till noon
to break my fast. I never had a yen
for food on waking – I would just as soon
let most the morning pass without. Back when
I was a kid with parents who’d cocoon
me if I let them, over and again
insisting breakfast is the vital meal?
My stomach always argued – no big deal.

(Ottava Rima)
