Brown Devotion

The day I had expected
arrived, romantic
and fierce. Good criminals were
everywhere, acting out,
acting up.
Polarities, charming
and civilized to
the max, were not enough
to prevent the gold
light of evening.
The gilded
heads of intelligent
pedestrians, not
enough to send
us into paroxysms
of indolence.
The more we watched
the more we failed
to see. Even now
that stores open
early, close
late in the evening
if ever.
