vanilla ice cream is unusual
like usual
i grabbed my morning coffee
like usual
i smoked my morning cigarette
like usual
i thought about the day and what i would do and
like usual
i felt like a usually did
but this morning
unlike usual
or, rather, unusually
i dropped the last few sips of my coffee on a scoop of vanilla ice cream
and the day wasn't so bad any more
it never usually is 
and i know, and you know
that sometimes it feels
more often than not
there is nothing and no one
to give us a thought
or us to them
no one, no one
no one to talk to
no one to call home
no one to call baby when you get home
no one to call
no one, no one,
no one at all
but even bad coffee is better than no coffee at all
