Escaping the Night
A sunshine smile
equals a thousand unspoken words
brandished by complacency,
tethered between Doc Martins.
Awkward movements and jutting angles
as arms outstretch and wrap behind
your Old World Spaniardesque hair,
resting finally at your ruffled skirt.
Moments fragmented by time,
anxious to be captured
through alcohol soaked membranes.
brushing backbeats and variegated tempos
only coming to a standstill
with the silence of closing time.
