NaPoWriMo 2015 Day 6: The New Sexy


Today’s Napowrimo prompt invites us to write an aubade, a sort of morning after poem as lovers part from one another.  I’m a parent to two young children, and mornings are never as sexy as they were when my husband and I could sleep in.  But selflessness is the new sexy, in my opinion…


Cramps woke me up
at 4am and you were snoring
the morning came
and the boy child awoke
bounding into the room
announcing his hunger

while young couples
wax poetic
about the way the morning sun
shines on the curves of
their bodies

the sexiest thing you can do
is take that boy downstairs
and give him breakfast

thanks for being sexy, honey.
