startled

I blink through my window
yawn and stretch
rumpled and sleepy

a sliver of sunrise
slices between two buildings
spotlights the last snow pie
on the lawn
and vanishes

across the street
a group of workers kibitzes
in the parking lot
before the day begins

behind them
the grey stone church
astounds in yellow sunlight
