Silent in the glow of a yellow roadside

a street and its cars;

I am alone

a sidewalk splits the road
     a wooden porch
          fenced off
               splits concrete

sun breaks the horizon
     yields to night
          oh the day is lost

I am silent
     I will not speak
          not ever
               not now

Green street signs face me
     respond in weary silence
          no directions
               they will not speak
                    not ever
                         almost never
