After The Reign - Next Morning

After the reign
there was breakfast
with a flowered china cup
unchipped, filled
with freshly brewed
coffee, a croissant
buttered whole
linen napkin
creased in straight lines
After the reign
there were clean crisp
white sheets
untangled under pillows
plumply undisturbed
After the reign
there was music
and dancing in the
darkening of daylight
After the reign
a soft smile starting
to stick, lingering
over lilac bruises
after the reign
peace
rained
