napowrimo 5: nightlife

Half-deaf in a silent street,
bereft of bass;
as he inhales, his cigarette
lights up his face.

A fox slips through a broken fence
and hurries on.

Two tramps in an empty warehouse
roast a stolen swan.

A man peers past his sleeping wife
to check the time.

Snails cross-hatch a patio
in trails of slime.

    varying snapshots of a ‘typical’ night-time.
