Kids

sodiumBe ready, we say.

 

We sit

We wait

 

A single street lamp

Sodium yellow

Stains the skin

 

We sit

We wait

 

A shadow scampers

Between parked cars

Cross the night narrow street

 

We sit

We wait

 

The cooling engine

Clicks and creaks

Splitting the night’s silence

 

We sit

We wait

 

Distant lights, flick on

Bedroom curtains

Swish shut

 

We sit

We wait

 

The radio hums

With midnight murmurs

And messages of love

 

We sit

We wait

 

They appear

Slide across the backseat

Sorry, dad

Thanks
