In sneakers and singlet he smiles sprinting by.

The narrow housefronts flush, grow warm.

Children on a stoop talk rules to a game, pointing out

sidewalk trees, which, thickly green, give off

a breath of summer, and day’s end. Lime-green

a woman slices over to the cafe, all glass, all reflection

as a red sun burns down to the horizon...

Keys: sun, light, windows
