And the livin's easy

Sitting outside by the Oval tonight around sunset
a few dry leaves falling from high in the trees
grass bright green .
Feeling it get darker and darker by the minute.
Off to the side somewhere someone's cellphone rings

Up in the apartment buildings , lights come on as
the cliff dwellers come home
Squares of light across the brick buildings surrounding the deep green of the Oval.
As the evening faded it got cooler ,
the ice cream man left

no car horns ,
just the cooling breeze
