Day 27- Rooftops

rooftops

small toes will graze the grit that's never seen
touch down for just a moment then their gone
skip lightly with the weightlessness of dust
their voices fill the drawn-pink clouds with hope
alight together on this giant clock
(it's for the best that there's no time to sleep)
their leader grins and points at fading stars
they count two to the right- hold my hand tight
and spead away till morning's light is bright
chased only by big ben's resounding toll
