Will You?

May 25, 2010

I say yes
to the night,
the embrace
of dark streets,
furtive motions,
dangerous airs,
yellow pools
staining sidewalks
I know by heart,
by heart-break,
memories walked
into stone, into
quiet miles and
worn out shoes,
questioning cops
and passing shouts,
but still bound up
in soft colors,
soft silences of words
left unsaid, echoing
years later, in time
with footsteps
retracing history,
old habits, still
saying yes
to the night.
