Now a half-yellow sun…Setting over tree tops,
and blue holds wispy white.
Black feathers swoop…Flying gnats attack the evening.
Shadows crawl across rectangle boxes.
Music blares from window shapes.
Tabby legs dash across green splinters.
Brown barking dog in pursuit.
Teriyaki chicken burns noses if inhaled.
Tummies rumble loudly at the aroma.
Red playground holds ten squealing children.
A boy named…Willy-nilly is quite silly.
Showing off for the lovely ladies.
A swing steadily moves back and forth.
And I, sipping green tea enjoy.
Dampness crawls with the shadows.
Dust lingers in the air.
Cigarette burning from an open slider below.
White lights flicker on…One by one.
Another night comes…Uninvited.
