dark night, red light


Sargent, John Singer, A Dinner Table at Night, 1884

dark night, red light

dark night
red light
saxophone hums
days of films
nights of jazz
steady neon haze

simple-role playing
it’s a date
plan the air
thicken the stage

D is for DENISE

dark feathers, dead crows


Figure Eight by Franz Kline

dark feathers, dead crows

dark feathers, dead crows
strange, submissive,
forever hungry

gloomy rough lace
suggestive pupae
overshadows death

egregious flapping
moth shadows murmuring
over a final petal

stone drops on the grave
bone-white pebbles
misfortune of another
