Stoplight

Stoplight flashing in the dark.
Heartbeat of a sleeping town.
Red and yellow flashes reaching
into the darkness.
They bounce off storefront glass in all directions.
And the people dream on.
With the dawn resuscitation of
the citizens reflected in a now
tricolor cycling.
The nightly ritual of countless little hamlets
once more complete.

though it goes dark sometimes especially

With the dawn resuscitation of
the citizens reflected in a now
tricolor cycling.

I like the opening and the ending lines especially
