sugarless sweetness

7:48, I'm awake
been that way since 2 or 3am
I've walked around in my underwear with the dog watching
I've showered
boiled water for oatmeal and coffee
searched for sugar
without finding any
and as odd as it may seem
I substitute with honey

I'm back in Nashville with the cityboy and Johnny
dripping honey off the spoon into black sludge coffee
all crammed into the closet kitchen of his Music Row apartment
sweet minimal Johnny Z
his mandolin and violin hanging proudly on the wall
the fridge and freezer (for some reason) stacked high with cartons of organic milk
being all that he is
sharing all that he's got
his life advice in riddles and lyrics
I smile and laugh and think
coffees not so bad with honey in it
