    night
    the temple's smoke
    trails towards stars

    a new year
    in the French Quarter
    an angel passes by

    against a lamp post
    two mimes
    watch the circus

    cigarette, broken nails
    life's expectations --
    her first trick, tonight

    Spinters on the sidewalk-
    at the lampstreet's light,
    a stars gazer

    harvest moon leading
    the morning star --
    change in season, i feel
