“Union Square” from The 30th Anniversary Issue of The Northern Virginia Review

Union Square

 

Cars in lamplight hug

dark curbs: wet asphalt, strewn leaves.

Couples hurry by.

 

Rays from high windows

cast shadows through mottled trees.

I walk the long stretch

 

of arching branches,

alone in my need to name

the night air, alone.
