'Night light'

December 04, 2007|By E. L. SYVERSON

Out on the Dual
there are so many lights that come in my window.
Even on a night where I can't see the sky
I have my own personal moon.
It shines into my bedroom and casts a shadow on the floor.
Though it tries to keep me awake,
I love the pale glow of its light on my face,
striping me through my blinds.
So I finally fall asleep
and dream of a real moon
instead of the synthetic one across the street.
