One Night In Northeast Minneapolis,

By Terry Scott Niebeling

 

On the western horizon hung white-violet light.

Just before dusk, just before night.

 

Outside arctic breeze whipped clawed tops of leafless trees.

 

On the ground snow-pack stood a foot deep; booted pedestrians crossed icy streets.

I rested back on bent knees, transfixed: at work, at peace, at ease.

 

On my mind ideas of being set free: thoughts of flying east.

Only a piece of glass stood between.
