‘Before the sun’ as snatched by the Weathercats.

after the
streetlights
blink off
at last
the
remnant
dawn
left to itself
you know the
fade in
of sky
finding
ground
in you

for a few
minutes
you know
the true
fresh look
of the
road
hedges
window
waves
foaming
out over
shell
in the
lit silence
they ring
into.

this is
the gap
i carry
slip
into.

my first
and last
hope.
