a wanting for you…

trains wail…crying out into darkness…
outlines of trees…drooping limbs…headlights reflect in a window of a vacant house…while a Catholic church illuminates at 4 in the morn…calling out to sinners…all in need…

sirens from cop cruizers scream…going fast down Harrison…blue hues cast color upon an empty street of gray…only the shadow of a man walking swiftly can be seen…going nowhere…nowhere…

abandoned cars line an alleyway…old Chevys…Fords…a couple of vans painted rust and white…rust and white…owners long gone…left all behind…all behind…an engine tries in vain to start…

and here i sit alone in my rented room…listening…watching…waiting and wanting…

you…

a wanting for you…
