Pound'n the streets.
Stiletto dancing, in the moonlit street,
Rain softly falling, keeping rhythmic beat,
Radio whining, on a park bench seat,
Images of the night.

Hope in a pound coin, the freezing tramp finds,
Windows in building broke, fighting the times,
As hours slowly pass, the city clock chimes,
Images of the night.

Cardboard city coughs, as trains trundle by,
Silver mist falling, on cold tiring eyes,
Lone siren wakened, beginning to cry,
Images of the night.

Corner girls swaying, displaying their wares,
Cautious cars cruising, where wives never dare,
A passenger rides, escaping the fare,
Free as the wind tonight.
I just up my new site and would love comments on it. As I am unemployed I do not wish to keep it up if the opinion is that it may not be worth it. Thank you

I left it
on when I
left the house
for the pleasure
of coming back
ten hours later
to the greatness
of Teddy Wilson
"After You've Gone"
on the piano
in the corner
of the bedroom
as I enter
in the dark

This Way Out

by T.P.Winch

Ringfinger was nervous
Pinky terrified
when they learned
that Hand might succumb
to the rule of Thumb.
