Nightfall

You Stood Me Up And I Cried As The Rain Fell

Night fell faster that fall
The daylight, unsaved,
expired behind the skyline
every day after lunch

In a fluorescent cocoon,
night stayed in its drawer
until each file was saved,
each window closed

Taillights and stoplights
flashed a rude red and green
Santa sailed over Main Street
Night scorched every gift
