    dotsPassing a School in the Nightdots
    -------------------------------------------


    While others are wedded to electric light
    I carry my thought on the road outside
    I pass the den in the amber glow
    Where quiet Cerberus sleeps.

    The shelters at the top of the street
    Are yellow and empty; no lift is coming
    As rain comes spilling over the roof-tops,
    The charcoal bushes keep their secrets.

    And something glints in the bare class-room,
    A spirit begging for warmth in her empty seat
    Makes me realise I don't want to know
    Where the road will lead this Autumn night

    The leaves are keeping their own knowledge now
    And those that gather around the gate seem meek.

      Interesting imagery: charcoal bushes, but after the line indicating it is raining. Are the bushes like charcoal because of the rain and gloom, or should I imagine what charcoal looks like when wet with rain? The things our minds latch onto.

    One minor suggestion--the last line stumbles a bit at "gather around", might consider changing to "gather 'round" to kill one syllable.

      the leaves of her book
    unruffled and stiff
    are the thousands of secrets
    on a child's lips...

    Just a few thoughts on yours.
