Morning routine

I bumped into myself
In the shower today,
Washing my hair,
Deep in muscle memory
An unthinking meditation.

Comforted by the ritual
Of lather and rinse,
I remembered me,
Getting ready to go
Like so many times before.

Though I know
As the water disappears
Down the drain,
I will step back
Out into weird,

Just for a moment,
It was like any other day.
