Evaporative Life

tires of parked cars slowly turn and slowly peel away
from the curb and cold pavement street
parking places are left behind for other later folks
during colder months the night is winding down at not even 12
there are suddenly a lot of people on the sidewalk
talking walking sirens collecting cars and people by the curb
everybody has somewhere to go but me
I'm standing by the subway and today 's the day I have no job
life sometimes offers interesting opportunities
when things from out from under you disappear
before you really realize they were there
the things I thought I had are gone
from here and reform over there
