Night and Crystal Clear

Night and crystal clear
The thoughts of the watchman
Asleep and parapet-less
The pacing of the guard
In his head
Halberd at the ready
To fence out the circus
Fence out the zoo
With angels snoozing above
Angels twisting the blankets
Angels having the watchman’s nightmare
Of lonely dinner
Empty photo frames
Dirty bathroom
The curtains that came with the place
