Cool, Dark City Morning

Cool, Dark City Morning

Cool, dark city morning
3 A.M.
Steeped in fog and salt
Stealing from a still waterfront
Distant street sweeper sounds and
Quiet conversations
Softer than the sharp stench of
Urine-soaked blankets
Echo from asphalt
Concrete and
Hard lives and beds made in doorways
Of doors opened to misfortune
Left behind by circumstances
And taxis hailed in
The cool, dark city morning
At 3 A.M.
