beneath chocolate skies, guitars cry
across an alley strewn with yesterday's headlines
my toes dig deep under covers
fingers grasp at shadows
lightning-strobed onto ceiling and wall
head tucked under one arm,
you float into late dreams
confess old lies and deceptions
sit unwanted vigil
until the street cleaner's clanging awakens,
whisking away all remains of the night

California artist Marques Vickers has appeared on my pages before.
What can I say? I love his work. Be sure to visit his site.
