Night in a Brooklyn Apartment

I have experienced profound happiness in a street-lit room,
dark, red, yellow,
voices outside,
sirens and music,
bangs,
traffic
the room filled with summer warmth,
a lover far away
and fire within
my heart beat pulses a smile to my lips
which spreads and breathes in the night
a heavy happiness
weighing me to my mattress
until I am contended to sleep.
