another day

colored lights….must be Christmas…movie spotlight…a church band singing “Here I am to Worship”…”Go Tell It On The Mountain”…and an angel on stage…backpacks hugging corners and edges of the common corridors…a circle of children smiling and praying…jackets hanging on command post hooks behind a desk…Please Use Other Door- used and open…gingerbread cookies as hard as cement…the aroma of freshly buttered popcorn luring visitors down the hall…rotting spinach in Michelle Obama’s lunch program decorating discarded trays…”Gingers Rule” according to a dry erase board message…musty nineteenth century books sandwiched like Oreos between twentieth century trash beneath a cathedral ceiling…low tech, high tech, no tech, Star Trek in a salmon colored bookcase, in a room deep in the basement, opposite “the Hobbit Hole-” a twentieth century relic of faulty construction…the winter sun dancing upon blue-tinted glass, flirting with sculptured figures deep below the sidewalk…as the day lingers, till evening’s shadow clothes the mountainsides with a blanket of soon coming sleep, when the world between the mountains passes through another phase, and no creatures stir within the brick-sided building beneath the stars of a suddenly stinky sky…a sign is coming from the southeast- as winter wakes again…and tomorrow the children may wake to a world white with snow…
