Good Morning Mr. Ben

I have my computer set to kick start a playlist to help me wake up in the morning. I change the order of the songs, but the same first song plays every time. It just fits.

“Your Most Valuable Possession” by Ben Folds Five

“Good morning, Mr. Ben.
It’s about 6:30 —
Winston-Salem, North Carolina.

Um…just laying here in the bed,
half awake, half asleep,
thinking about you.

I was
wondering if you were looking after your
most valuable
your mind.

I was thinking about
John Glenn,
his space journey and all.

They said that
when you’re in space you lose
muscle mass
and the body
and I wondered if there was any
end to it.

Or whether,
if you didn’t exercise in space,
how long it would be before you were just
a head, or a mind —
and have no body or arms.
You’d have them but you couldn’t use them.

I was wondering if
if your body mass would drop to a certain level,
and then it would stop right there.
And keep whatever you needed to
use your mind
because it would still be working.”

(30 seconds remaining)

“Anyway, I was just pondering that.
What do you think about…that?

I hope everything is going alright.
I may well wake up here in a little while
and forget what I was thinking about.”
