SILHOUETTES OF DECAY
(11/24/14)


I enjoy
the overcast
nights

the cloud
cover
reflects
the city lights
creating
a glowing dome
of illumination

I look
up
from the yard
to see shadowed
in the foreground
the bare November
branches
and power lines

each
defining
a different
death

one
cyclical

the other
unidirectional
in its despair

one natural

hopeful

the other
oh so
human

bleak

I close
my eyes
and imagine
a perfect
sky
