There are trees

Blues between the branches

Angled yellow lights

Slicing shadows

Day’s possibilities


At night,

The shadows, you know, will be longer

Sky’s light will change to silver

Trees will seem rougher

And the buildings,

Though they’re not

The night has



Not the daytime but its own
