Inner City Dawn

Early dawn on Prince Street NYC

The street is deserted, no one’s around
An occasional car, but no other sound
All you see are the shadows of the night
Broken only by the eerie glow of street light
If you’re still long enough, you can hear a mouse
Bold enough to scurry through the house
And then a glow arrives reaching over it all
Watching it slowly chase the shadows on the walls
Taking away the chill of the dark night
Filling my world with its warm light
Neighborhood junkies going for a fix

Winos, bag ladies, a crazy mix
Parked cars leave from their spaces

People start to pass, I know some of the faces
Each morning I watch this changing show
Until its time for me to go
