In a dark, dark world

by KilgoreTrout

Starlight howls windlessly
into the cups of his eyes.
A moonlit stalker
looking for quiet places
is chewed up by midnight.
The rotters snicker
over card games down the alley.
Dark clouds billow,
and he skulks home
to drink brew and oversee
the world from his fat
leather chair.
From time to time,
faint clicks
come from the street
far below, tiny fish
in the dark ocean of silence.
In his junkyard den,
electrics hum and buzz.
LEDs blink in the dark forest
of cables and tiny packets of news
flutter up the wires
and into the dark pools
of his eyes.
