Morning

Morning

Out on the street
animated voices
people making plans
exchanging information

somewhere close by
scaffolding is being
erected
and the shutters
of small shops
are opening up
for business

suitcases dragged
over the cobblestones
sound like the canter
of horses

once I’ve had my coffee
and a bite to eat
I’ll be out there myself
part of the throng
building the day
