night owls

I haven’t worn a watch for months,
but bedroom curtains tell the time:
the sunset’s never late—
and climbing out of bed,
I catch your smile in twilight coming down—
the whole damn world can wait.

the streets have sparked alight
in streaks of black and white—
come on, come on: let’s stay up all night.

darkened doors, and liquor stores,
and Orphan Andy’s drawn a crowd—
and there’s still so much to see—
down to Mission, Noe Valley
feels like uphill all the way—
but I don’t care if you’re with me.

and everything’s alright;
the clouds are fire-bright...
...and we’re burning time at the speed of light...

it’s such a lovely sight.
the streets are fire-bright.
and we know this city is ours tonight.
