moonrise over central park

moonrise over
central park,
stark branches reaching
into the almost-
dark sky:
forks of night
against one night
in december,
the path light
from the glow of the
lamps: sight
of feet on silent
stone. muffled
sound of traffic
from the street: alone,
just us
to walk across the park
at dusk.
