Yellow Triangle

At the south end of the driveway near work 
is a stark little building, a car wash.
Cement block with brick facing, it's a bit down at heel, 
just like the surrounding neighborhood,
but it's earning it's keep; there frequently are two 
or three cars being washed as I pass by in the morning,
with that same amount later when I leave.
This bay was empty when I walked through,
the morning light making a yellow wedge 
that attempted to brighten the dingy walls.

The sunlight does give it a certain kind of vibrance that it wouldn't otherwise see.
