Crack of noon

I wake at the crack of noon, he said,
wincing either from his stale humor
or the truth of waking hungover
at midday, the truth of the sloth
he wore like a sweater in winter.
He began to ramble then,
knowing he should have stopped
long ago, the talking, the drinking,
and the sloth.

What do you think?
