Another Late Night

May 15, 2010

Slipping into the quiet moments
between neighbors celebrating
and teenagers cruising the night,
that sensation of stillness,
as though only you exist
in those late hours, those
thoughts that group in silence,
peace, or loneliness, all depending
on the hours before the lull,
the hours waiting after,
what else will fill the quiet
as children wake to play,
as birds sing up the sun.
