On Leaving the City

The gray clouds brood over slate colored buildings

 

The sun fighting to peek through

 

Glistens off windows

 

Whose eyes demand to see

 

 To watch

 

As sentinels 

 

Counting those coming

 

Subtracting those going

 

Bringing home it's inhabitants 

 

While escorting out it's visitors

 

The city


Hungry for the night to come


The darkness


And the comforting silence


It will bring to the streets


And the gift that will arrive


With a new day dawning


And Boston begins again
