early stillness

city awakening

neon’s blink off

apartment lights on

a few cars

and a cat


warm street air

pigeons pass overhead

red brick walls

slate steps

alley doors

aroma of

bacon and coffee

stagnate puddles

grease and

diesel fumes


sun rising over

rivers horizon

stepping slowly

from earths

other side
