In the waiting room the leaves fall,
Like children who don't know
A time and place.
In the corridor is
The silent auction done,
As if at a certain time of day, as if
Under a particular sky.

To your own devices left
At the four a.m. window,
Sleepless as sight
Seeing dawn's moveless careful light
Cast a darker light than the night's last dark:
About this stone perhaps:
It seemed shawdowless before.
