''Aphotic Moments'' By David John Hart


'Aphotic Moments' by David Hart
As twilight surrenders to Nyx's ebony splendor,
A bewildered truck wrinkles a forlorn car's reticent fender.

Myriad sounds transude night's diaphanous black veil.
The wares of the dark are hawked by its' vendors' wales.
The alchemist barman's tantalizing brew,
Enkindles nepenthe promises for the few.
Stentorian banter scurrilously permeates a smoke filled room-
Compeers coincide quietly 'til melting into blathering bafoons.

A femme fatale's beseeching glances, switch anon into erotic trances
While motorcycle's buzzgrowl like machine guns coiling
Sirens portend like mad tarantella dancers roiling

Staccato whistles and yells, scorched tires screeching
Entwine with serpentine banshee winds infamously preaching

Anon, eve's riotous crescendo of cries now subsides
Welcoming the approach of Madame Aurora's ebullient eyes

Poem of the Day

poet Rupert Brooke

If I should die, think only this of me:
That there's some corner of a foreign field
That is for ever England. There shall be
In that rich earth a richer dust concealed;
