Real Life

mountain pines and a river with beautiful sky
Brian Hogan

The trees breathe on the streets

And the streetlamps burning gold

In frosty shadows

Distant cats brawl

And glass bottles break

Loud laughter for only seconds

Then silence

Beeping breaks the ominous calm

And bells on doors intermitant

But overall the still is steadfastly unbroken

Moonlight and headlights

Tires roll through puddles like splashing in the bath tub

Strangers dance

And children sleep

Mom’s worry and

Husband’s are just getting home from the office.

I wonder if the city is more alive now at two am

Than in the masquerade of the hot noon day.
