Halfway to Morning

Night time
Walking home
It’s halfway to morning
And I’m halfway to drunk

After days of rain
The stars are out

Not ready for sleep
I make a detour
Into town

Water still runs down hills
And pools in temporary lakes

Street lights and
Neon signs reflect
On the pools
Transforming the night
Into an oil slick rainbow

I feel as empty as the streets
Broken glass glints like
Tiny fallen stars

Then I look up
And laugh
Suddenly happy to be
Alone in this sleeping town
