Darkened Sky

img_1669_night_train_400Moths
Crashed
Against the
Closed windows
Under the
Darkened
Sky.

As scraps
Of paper slowly
Swirled around the
Turning carousel;
The haunted street
Lamps casting shadows
Against cobblestones,
Gutters and cafe doors.

The violin
Music cutting
The yellow
Warmth of
The atmosphere
Above their voices
And laughter.

Red lips
Glowing,
Saffron
Dresses
Flowing
Among
Top hats
And bow
Ties.

As moths
Crashed
Against the
Closed windows
Under the
Darkened
Sky.
