Friday Morning

“She turned me into a newt!….I got better.” ~ Monty Python and the Holy Grail

I have to carefully schedule

my coffee:  only one cup,

my nod to addiction, and I obey

the autoimmune protocol: no sugar.

I’ve added MCT

for the disaster pants/

brain octane.  For that metabolism

zap, it’s cinnamon from Ceylon.

Coconut oil for the good

omegas, whipped with coconut

milk — I love some froth — and collagen

for my beautiful hair

— OMG, have I told you how healthy

it is?  A glorious mane

remedy for the shorn kid’s

fine tangled curls.

Oh, and it has to occur

before nine or I can’t sleep.

No lingering

per the dentist, or if I do

sip appreciatively, at least run

to brush my teeth when the cup

of early morning lakeside

is drained of every last

drop of today’s hocus-pocus.
