one early morning

One morning in August

 

It is early morning, but the petrol station is open

A man stands outside drinking a beer and smokes a cigarette

Not for me to be critical; he needs it to face the day

Before goes to walk in an office on the other side of the road

He is chewing gum; probably he does some tedious work

Repairing computers.

The petrol station is filling up with cars I noticed the prices

Has gone up, others hang outside drinking coffee and

Talking about how expensive it is to drive, but in our society

People often have a long way to drive to work, and it is

Too cold to be sporty and use the bicycle, even the electric ones.

I have had a shower but since my balance unsteady so early

I sit on a kitchen chair inside the tub only get up when

Cleaning parts I cannot reach sitting down.

More and more cars fill the road, and I can’t be standing

Looking out all day long I have other things to do
