The streetlamps
pool their glances
on the rain beaten streets
yellowed stepping stones
the way ahead filled
with spotlights on the soundstage
of untrodden morning

I pull my collar
and become hardboiled
a remnant of pulp filled
mid century memory
Marlowe with a smart phone
heading for the underground
with a noir sensibility
you could cut with a broken bottle
