Insociance Of Rest - Poem by Robert Rorabeck

When the day is gone there is an
Insouciance of rest—peaceful insects
Slumber in the bordellos of the hibiscus—
The road of shells and tears
Becomes a beatific ribbon leading to and
From the canal,
And the world beyond:
Orchards and baseball diamonds creeping
Up between the spotlights—
Luminescent,
Reminding us of our daydreams, like children
Kidnapped underneath the moon.
