Days of Future Past (198 words = 251-53)
Call me Morning Glory. Actually... don't call.

It's been a rough night, too much dancing and now my neck is stiff.

Ah, the madrugada, that quiet time before the dawn. I usually go to bed early and get up by now. It's the only time I have all to myself.

My boyfriend moved out this past weekend. I was down in the dumps on Saturday. But... Oh, what a Monday! Oh, what a night!

I've never seen so many stars twirling around the dance floor.

I wish the spinning would stop.

I should go to bed but I'm wide awake and now I should hurry to get things done before the dawn, before the city awakes.

I wind my way home and up the steps. I hold on as if I have tendrils.

I pause and turn around. A brief interlude. A quiet solitude.

Ah, that moment before dawn when the nightingale still sings.

Now I see a faint glow below the horizon and I hear a lark. And Monday seems like a dream, bitter-sweet or not. The pinprick holes in the sky seem brighter somehow and the sky is turning pink.

Call me Morning Glory.
