by Frank Tassone

Published in Issue No. 3 ~ April, 1996

Streaks on the sky
edged over night
shortest night
of the year

Bright flash!
Night is day
day is gone.

a streak
over Clarkstown homes
a baby cries
on his face
a mother’s comfort
soon delivered

Lightning viewed
through a honda moon roof

Careful hands
touch a brass doorknob
stainless steel keys
in their fingers.
