BROKEN WINDOW

by Emanuel Xavier

 

i was once one with the night—

defiant building reaching for the cobalt sky

bright city lights

the air crisp with defiance

now i watch as i lay in my bed

listening from the distance

to the sounds of rubber against pavement speeding by,

the occasional plane

jealous of the wind

waiting for the storm
