THUGWISE CAT

Night settles in the six

Night settles in the six pm of eternity, no daylight savings for the damned. AFTER A RAIN Tell me again how candlelight, dusk dark rooms, guardian dog, heavy door, and brass door knob collect the sound and feel of hollow wet throb inside down spouts. Blue shutters cloak windows looking out to wet slick stone stairs, wet pebble path, wet water garden bridge, bent nail submerged. Raindrops gloss luminescent green ivy. In the pond two fish are parallel bars of gold. Sting of thirsty mosquitoes on my bare arm as I walk and hear a single bird call. 33
