Mission: Creep

100 words


Waking up late into the night,
As I sometimes do,
I get up and eat a handful of mixed nuts
And drink a small glassful of cold milk.

Waiting for that to settle,
I do some New Year's resolution
Balancing exercises.

I'm facing out
Onto the street
Gyrating awkwardly on one leg,
Window frames my visual reference.

What if someone sees me,
This old dork on one leg?

But what kind of creep
Peers into MY window?

What kind?

At your advanced age, Jim,
What do you care what kind?
Any creep at all
Is better than no creep.
