All Sense of Time

my alarm went off
way too early this morning
and I lost all sense of time

breakfast and coffee 
were over before I knew it

the morning was scrubbed clean 
and the next thing I knew 
the clock struck noon

traffic and distraction 
took up the mid-afternoon

the early evening consumed 
just as fast
as the meal we ate for dinner

dusk was in the dust 
by just after eight

I feel I'm just now 
catching up
and I'll savor the hour and a half 
that I have left
