                                   there is a curve / to the sky / not quite 45 degrees
                                   not quite / anything

                                   we are alone / here in history / here in the street
                                   waiting / on a storm / to rush clear / these dirty gutters
                                   we wait / on a particular kind / of light
                                   generally / we just / wait

                                   a moon / hovers / overhead / just lingering

                                   a big white / moon / just lingering / loitering
                                   after dark / on the streets / in the gutters

                                   waiting / without fear /
                                   of police / interaction
