in about an hour,

in about an hour,
the sun will come in just so, a
bent wave glancing off

a new city prism – witchcraft
costing an arm and a leg

from sunrise to
sunset, we struggle
to say the things
we want to say,
chased down with
the words we
want to hear –
attention slacks
from so much
pressure

bird, who is up half

an hour before sunrise –
we wrestle for the airwaves

the sun rose one
minute earlier today,
birds all at once
silenced, at attention,
except the eastern
towhee, still trying
to steal you away
from home after
all these years

waking before the

waking before the
6:32 sunrise is
like walking along
the corridors of the
music building and
searching for an
available practice

eavesdropping.
the hallway is a

when the sun finally
rises, all the birds
fall silent,
except that one,
and you know for sure
that you are awake

sneaking in a bath

sneaking in a bath
before sunrise, i have all
the hot water in

the world, and no one is waiting –
dreams shake loose, float towards the edge

always, always, there

before sunrise, sky

within the sleeping

within the sleeping
that is like waking,
minutes and seconds
stall together in
traffic, waiting
for the light to turn

for years, my father

for years, my father
rose before sunrise so that
we could sleep soundly –

we flourished in certainty
when love was something simple
