I Saw a Future at 3 AM


                      to edward hopper and neil young
At twenty-three I saw him
Through two louvered windows
An alley between us
Maybe fifteen feet distance
I stood in the dark, invisible
Looking out my window
Sipping coffee blankly
Ready for work
Lisa still asleep
In the next room
In his window
A closet light glowed
Behind a thin old man
Sitting on the edge
Of his bed in boxers
Staring at a wall
Alone
(September 2011)
