DARK BEFORE DAWN

city-night-sky

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

There’s a time when the night sky changes

from black to blue that’s just as dark

but things in the distance are more distinct

.

and you see that what you were looking for—

a lover, an answer, a break, or sleep—

is not in this night for you to find.

.

But no one goes mad in this quarter-hour.

This is the time to rest from your searching,

to buy a cup of coffee and then go home

.

to lie on your bed and listen

to the people wake who search by day.
