Night Scene

It crosses the streets like a breath,

a wish of dying winter.

A whisk of lateral rain splattered

in drops of darkened magic.

And as the misty night smoak

wraps the city like a cloak

a single figure whistling stalks

across the open intersection,

collar turned up tight; as night

cats watch from above and wish

that they could open windows.
