lapses

the sun rose in the afternoon,

long after the birds sang,

long after the children left from their classes ;

its light no longer the morning glow that woke this city

but that which let everyone know to go home,

to close the shutters and to bring their days to a close ;

the sun rose in the afternoon

to remind everyone

that it was always still there
