Empty as the moments before dawn ~ Bob Kesh

I’m alone in the apartment
& the city looks as
empty as the moments before dawn.

I smoke a cigarette
by an open window
& listen to the quiet hum

from where
or what
I don’t know.

It’s the evening before my
26th birthday,
there’s a quiet peace here
deserted beaches where
the waves never break just
roll on into eternity

these moments will one day be gone,
my wave will finally roll back.
I can only hope
to hear this quiet hum
that stretches on
into eternity
