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
