Friday Floetry: The Dark

Straight from the mind while on my grind. Raw observations of my Friday morning.

The Dark

In the dark, in the rain
Manhattan looks menacing.

The curved fence,
less protective
more aggressive.
Curving over onto unsuspecting passersby.

The red lights of cars in traffic
take the form of a many-eyed monster.
Shining and staring.

The bridge, once a means of transport,
now a giant rat trap poised to strike.
Ready to ensnare us
and trap us in the night.
