my father's voice is my alarm / as he stomps down the stairs before the pink-tongued whisper of dawn, / cracking eggs into a stainless steel bowl / and brushing butter across thick slabs of brioche. 
i smell the sugared incense / before the crackle of the stove / and a wafting warmth fills the sleepy halls -- / cinnamon tastes oddly like love.
