-The Morning after-

Sleep induced eyes, look at the morning after.

A drunk rises from his stupor
into the normalcy of vegetable vendors,
sleepy children trudge off to school-
A beggar takes his place,
in streets teeming with hope
illicit lovers raise their eyes
from a night of flirtation,
to the normalcy of regained composure-

In faltering steps,
life assumes proportions normal.
