Once a Moment

As Dusk blankets July into a dream full of flames firing on its firmament;
As the golf balls break the waters of the Lagoon next to the fair;
As the cars snail their wheels towards LA on the heavy 8-O-5;
As the only dearth of summer coldness swims through the windows of the bus;
As the pillow-like shores still hush the obese crowds, reminding them of—
As the child stares at the glow manifesting from the Earth's edge, asking
"When will it turn night soon?"
