shadows…

used to watch from sidewalks in early morn under blue street lights and starry skies… moon cast shadows…dogs would bark…middle-class men leaving their wives for another day of selling insurance…piecing together cars on assembly lines…meeting lovers in parking lots…breakfast with the boys…

and you could see living room lamps burn…curtains drawn in bedrooms…bathroom windows fogged…silhouettes applying make-up…naked…just shadows of curved bodies…

smoke from fireplaces…snow crunching under foot as I walked from door to door with paper in hand…taken from a black print stained bag reading…, JOURNAL GAZETTE….never looked at the headlines…

all these suburban houses…homes where meals were eaten…prayers said…love made…secrets kept…

i wondered…i wondered…
