Cajun Mutt Press Featured Writer 08/23/19


Ancrum Road, 4AM

The night-sky fades to watercolour
and paint streaks trickle down
its looming canvas,

Prussian blue diluting,
my feet float on further.

The streetlights blink out one by one,
beacons extinguishing,
trailing endlessly over the skyline
that my stare washes down.

The dark shrinks to an ink blot,
whispering away to nothing
as daylight stretches out across.
