Yellow Lights of Moray (5:15)

--:-- / --:--

A man in a trench coat speaks into a cell phone.
A woman in black dances with the wind.
Across town sirens are wailing.
I watch it unfold from the pedestrian bridge.

Clouds form, the sky looked like a carousel.
River’s doing what rivers do.

Saddle up Green Arrow,
pedal until my shadow is long.
Under the yellow lights of Moray,
here since nineteen ninety five.

Clouds part and open to the heavens.
People doing what people do.
