the sun was just enough 
to make the day lighter
in this new june heat

a patch of grass shines
in the corner of the angle
of the gray building

a corporate sundial
dictating where the short
midday rest may be

i pivot my slack and
jacket body into its silver
sliver, forgotting an 

overdue call, an email
required to send to say
only a sentence

if there is any extraordinary
in this life, it is the place
where warmth fosters a dream
