identity

by alana

The curtains are drawn back, it is a dynamic form of still life. Life caught in the pauses.

man inside the frame
catches up with forty winks
old news and new ads

The room is bathed in a yellow glow. But the walls seem a tepid gray.

flat color palette
seasons wing by on the screen
pixels, channels, dreams

There is an abrupt shift of scene. Someone switches on the lights in my room. The balcony is not serene anymore. I am an exposed nocturnal.

owl knocked off its perch
toggle of light switch plays God
dawn shatters deep night

There is no room for contemplation. There are no dark corners to hide. Someone who needs me. The quiet hours are gone for now.

no cornered shadows
dry rivers of florescent thoughts
flooded by harsh light

Sadly, tomorrow was supposed to be hours away.

oh, i love this one alana. it's different from your usual style. many memorable lines like " toggle of light switch plays god ", and " dry rivers of florescent thoughts ". this was a nice, but unexpected poem by you little tigger - paul.
