Abstractions
When the empty streets glow
with the dust of the full moon
mingling with the glare of streetlamps
and the jagged light of taverns
I welcome the comforting darkness
of the side street and alley
that covers like a cold sheet
hiding your chill shadow which
    ever clasps my hand
and masks the distance
to a vague destination
which inexplicably draws me on
