Negotiating Warm

light creeping in past my lashes
dim but regardless present
warm air piping in from the doorway
I croak to no one
objecting to the early morning
and chuckling at my cat lady chattering
as my legs slide out silently
I bless the finally conquered thermostat
preceding my rising
shunning goose bumps for static
a calculated compromise
