3am...

It is almost 3 in the morning.

My corner of the world
could be just like yours,
or the opposite.

Mine is 3 things: Black. Quiet. Cold.

The red numbers
on the clock
blink from 1 to 2 to 3,
fading in and out
as the time creeps
slowly towards
day.

In a few hours,
my corner of the world
could again be
just like yours,
or the opposite.

Mine will be 3 things: White. Quiet. Cold.

It is almost 3 in the morning.
Time fading,
from 1 to 2 to 3 minutes
past the hour.
I watch the time moving forward.
Foward toward the day.

In my corner of the world,
I will see 3 in the morning.

my corner, as it turns out, has been just like yours (and I was indeed up at 3 AM in the incredible cold and black).

Happy New Year, Georgie K! And happy West Side Story!
