untitled 10/4/08

Sitting alone

In the semi dark

As my daughter sleeps off

The remnants of a cold

And my love

Prepares to board a plane

Back

To an 8,000 mile away

Home,

I sip a beer

And listen

To music

And the sound

Of falling rain

On the overcooked

Asphalt.

Even in the dark

Of the evening,

I can see

And smell

The steam rising

Off the street.

Sweet melancholy

Drenches me,

While the rain

Soaks

The ground outside.

Within a few days

Things will be

Greener outside

And a little greyer

Inside.
