MIXED AND EQUAL

Sealed within the envelope of

night

is a common indifference.

Shadows appear equal.

A corner musician pulls at the

strangers eyes.

Coins in the hat

drinks for a night

a city bus with sleepers

roars by.

Skelton road crews work for

food.

A walk between the avenues,

neon signs wave welcome

subways rumble below,

buses above.

Soft street lights weak with beam.

Faces with dreams built from lies.

The city stirs the night.
