The City Lights in Every Small Town

the slow growing grass
by the river,
the damp breeze of an incoming
thunder storm,
the smell of a Sunday morning;
everyone is home
and time isn’t hovering.

the risen dirt
from the now wet pavement,
the mindless chatter of a school day;
your little brother speaking.
The hustle of the day-to-day
the struggle to breathe.

It is
it was
