Apartment Building on Intersection Partly in Darkness

Apt.323

Man stands at window

watching lights green yellow red

backward forward and again

 

Apt.417

Half asleep on her feet

mother rocks baby in her arms

backward forward and again

 

Apt.520

Woken in the night she

mounts him nightgown lifted
backward forward and again

 

Apt.610

Tomorrow is the big parade

he irons his straight creased uniform

backward forward and again

 

Apt.721

In a few hours they must part

holding each other they dance in darkness

backward forward and again

 

Apt.813

Every detail rehearsed in his mind

he adjusts sights on his sniper’s rifle

backward forward and again

 

12:00

The cavalcade will pass by the building

she’ll cradle his head, rock in anguish

backward forward and again
