tonight

it’s the same old story.

stars steady in the sky:
they fall in a shower.
you grab a handful and
i hide them for wishes.

city smog obscures the view:
we remain sequestered in squares.
rattling cars and heavy thunder
hide the night from us.

night passes easily and painlessly:
as ever we are unaware.
we sleep for the dreams
expediting the journey of night –

and awake to new dreams.
