The city was never dark in winter

The city was never dark in winter,
Even the suburbs and the neighborhoods.
When the soft yellow light
Of the lampposts switched on at dusk,
The snow would reflect the light, and everything
Turned amber. Even the footprints. Our footprints.
I always stepped in yours. Seconds after you.
And if someone came after us, they would think
We were one. How we would laugh at that!
It was like pretending, one of us
Didn’t exist.
