Our Sleeping Night

Under
The
Flashing
Lights,
The dog
Rubbed
Iimg_0525_400ts back
Against
The rusting
City,the
Trusting
City.

Green
Moss
Gathering
On the
Groaning
Hulk.

Slapping
Against
The side
Of the
Dock.

The
Yellow
Fog
Curling
Up in
Empty
Doorways
And hallways.

Our
Thoughts
Curled up
In our
Sleeping
Night;the
Dark night
Embracing
Us In its
Woollen
Caress.

Like
A mother's
Tender
Caress.

As the
Muffled
Jangling
Noise of
The garbage
Truck heralds
The day.

My soul
Halfway
Between
sleep and
The awakening
Day.

Taking
In the morning
Light through
Dinghy blinds
As rosy fingered
Dawn spreads
Across The
Sky.

The
Dog
Yawning
On this
Melancholy
Day; rubbing
Its back
Against
The rusting
City,the
Trusting
City.
