A city rain fell in long lines,
washing dust into gutters.
Twilight, the mistrals of dark,
waved hands of breezes
over streets with quiet sounds.
Engines of feet plodded into puddles,
splashing wetness with disregard.
Night dreams creep from open windows.
The sound of doors
mark the clock of darkness.
Bedroom lights signal days resign.
Ceiling fans cut into fat air
and lazy dust.
The ashes of spoken words
drift to floors where
half truths and lies
live in shadows.
Troubled thoughts smooth out
and then, we are pulled into day.
