Montauk By Morning by Jake St. John

I walk
along Montauk
in the city
of New London
with love
in my heart
the early
morning sun
warms my back
trees line
the sidewalks
and drop shadows
at my feet
bicyclists and cars
dogs in the street
a train
blows its horn
like a thousand angels
the streets are alive
and so am I
