Nightly beats

Midnight road is shallow from below
And side streets are dark and lonely.

And  the watchman beats a sad road
As poets sit near machines of words.

Watchmen are on their nightly beats,
Sad in the inside roads of their lives.

(Inspired by the watchman in Robert Frost’s poem Acquainted with the night”)
