Urban Noir

                   Urban Noir

When the cold,cold knife of night

meets the warm,warm blood of day,

and the light is extinguished

at the tunnel’s end,

All we’d done wrong

turns out right

all that was right

is now wrong;

As the solitary Raven

pecks madly at

your window pane,

and clouds lose their silver lining

who then will be left

to tell us what words

need to be

in our song?
