Headline Poem 5/22/14 -- Awake

Today's poem is based on this headline about how eating grapefruit may ease lung disease conditions.

Awake

Like a splash of grapefruit before 5:00 a.m.,
You make me pucker in a way
I don't recall
Anything
Ever doing before. 
I'm on to you,
Though I know you're good,
You make me question 
why I'm out of bed,
Enjoying you with a serving of 
toasted bread instead
Of peaceful slumber
That is easier on the mind 
And mouth,
But no where near as refreshing.
