Creative Writing, OldVenue

Creative Writing: January

In winter we sit side by side at 4am,
waiting for the sunrise; we will be here
for hours

watching the window, counting stars which
could be suns and planes which
could be stars

which watch us back, and then finally
she stretches and rises, painting our
silent morning yellow

until we cringe against the light and
you smile at me with your hand in mine
and eyes half-closed

but not blinking too often, because
every second of this morning is illuminated –
and you and I within it.
