Cruel splashes of blue neon lights

curiously push into an open apartment,

window to where a man sits looking out.


Below voices of strangers pass on the sidewalk,

their shoes tap and scuff to the corner

where they blend into traffic.


Music lightly filters up. A warm breeze

touches the arm of the man. He turns,

looking inward as a door opens.
