All the trinkets of the day

Waking up hurts. A glass of buttermilk and a handful
of vitamins as a breakfast substitute and a momentary
dedication to oral hygiene measure the effort needed
to meet each subsequent morning’s imposed needs
and expectations handwritten on the refrigerator door.
But a telephone that never rings is all for decoration,
as is a box of unread letters and a dictionary purchased
just the day before, which has lost its relevance already,
yet still needs dusting, like all the trinkets of the day.
