And the livin's easy
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
