6:00 am

Angela Eastman

 

Only the sky-line

is orange

the lawns are still frosted

with dew,

and the lamps are on;

they do not know

day has come.

 

The ticking clock

echoes

an unseen crow

cries from his perch

one lone car

rumbles down an

empty road.

 

Time doesn’t stop

even for a moment.
