6 AM at McPherson Square

6 AM at McPherson Square

No one is up.

Just us workerbees.

Pink sky.

Cool, strong breeze.

The homeless men – and it is all men here – are huddled under their blankets.

A cabbie is on the corner with his lights off.

No one is saying anything.

Car horns are silent.

Lights keep changing on time.

DC is just waking up.

I will sleep soon…
