The Sky Dims
A few cars driving down the road.
People falling asleep in their beds.
The sun slipping behind the horizon.
The sky dims. They roll out of bed.
Giggles heard from the apartment next door.
They blink in there empty apartment.
This is the life.
Walking down the hall to the kitchen.
A yell from the arguing couple a few doors down.
Sitting at the table in the kitchen.
I should be sleeping.
They open their computer.
The last steak of purple
falls away from the black sky.
They stare at the screen.
Then stare a little more.
They open their notebook
I have too many ideas
is the title.
A car roars down the road.
They start typing.
Before they look up the sun shines in the window.
