the streets are shimmering
the 
streets are shimmering in anticipation 
  
don't 
disappoint the day don't 
blacken 
the sky with thoughtless emotions 
you are 
somewhere 
absent 
            minded 
                         or 
engrossed 
                   in daily routine 
  
quit it 
  
step 
       under 
a ladder 
walk on 
cracks 
  
tell your 
boss you got urgent 
business 
like writing a poem 
  
going for 
a walk 
  
anything 
you like but fast 
  
this 
moment 
the 
streets shimmer 
                  in anticipation
