Small Hours

by Writer

In these small hours

amazing things happen

though most are fast asleep

dreaming of everything they hope of and fear

In these small hours

some hold tight to their coffee mugs

studying the knowledge of the world

Just for the chance to make it somewhere

In these small hours

dogs send their love songs to the moon

inebriated by her beauty

Lucky is the dog to entrance her

In these small hours

lovers explore the bodies of one another

searching for freedom in the arms of each other

lights are not needed here

In these small hours

hours feel like minutes

minutes feel like seconds

and the heart’s feeling is amplified for better of for worse

In these small hours

street lamps tell stories when nobody’s looking

no warmth falls down from their breath

just the illumination of truth otherwise hidden in the dark

In these small hours

people live and die

In these small hours

I live

Street lamp
