Verse: five minutes

i enter
the world

when the sky
hazy on the details
of a long night withdraws from me

when people walk by
with their dogs
without a word or glance

when the vendor
at the corner store
sneaks out for a smoke

when the rush hour buses
go out of service
and roll on by

when pigeons look down
quizzically from pitched roofs
trying to make sense of it all

when there is
no milk for
my lover's tea

when i
am open
to inspiration.
