Empty Streets – Part 1

Moments ago this street was empty.

Stale and buzzing yellow lights cast long shadows

of vacant park benches and thin white birch.

Days will pass before the white truck

pulls in from the east, down main street

and exchanges letters with the blue boxes.

Corner cafe through the cracked glass

distorts the rising sun.
