Old Town Moon



In twilight Old Town,
above the end of First Street,
a yellow round moon.

From the speakers, Rod Stewart
sings "I know I'm losing you."

A reading of poems
beckons me across the bay
over the long bridge.

Poets slowly trickle in,
mumbling soft conversations.

An amplifier
hums, waiting to clarify
secret arranged words.
