Halogen Call

Unclenched feet from leather prisons
Pad catlike into sneakers
Radiation etched brown eyes
Drink lightless gulfs between halogen bursts
Chalk dust dry old man throat
Breathes night air free of conditioning and body stink
Bumper car psyche
Listens to the sound of itself
Mouse contorted back and arms
Fall gently into gentle swish

30 minutes without work or world
Ready to be home at my own door
