' A Night Poem '


After dancing on the nightly lips
Dreams melt in
The unrealized passion of the night

After choking the night's lungs
Nightmares break into
Dripping sweat on the night's skin

Where do colourful dreams
And nightmares equally
Hide in this gorging night?

Dismembered by the ravenous night
The vacuous body lumbers
In the vacant corridors of the day
