hiatus

walking alone in the city
passing from sunlight into shadow
and back to light once more

I spot a waterbug moving closely
in fits and starts along the edge
of a building    seeking  I surmise

a way out by going inward

another walker passes me and stops
beside me    STOMP!    the swiftness of death
the end of it all    time out

the assassin resumes his pace    I stand
seeking a way out by going inward
half in light    half in shadow

awaiting the stomp    the squish    hiatus
