Darkness –sun’s gone down–

Parking lights on on the grounds…

Things seem secure,

I’ll see on my tour,

Whatever  needs writing down.

Camera irises widen,

More ambient light providing…

Spot lights in places

Reveal animal faces,

Caught between shock and flight.

Things quiet down in here,

The workers are less this year…

If they go

Surely I know,

We’ll be the only ones left, that’s clear!
