The Night is Long and the Days Broken

Oh what a night! Lurking through the cool darkness with the moon as the enemy.

The streets of LA — warming the chill of the encounter that hit me hard and bruised my ability to obey the traffic lights.

I take a break. The heel of my struggle topples me over. The concrete sucks me in and I cave under the stars that reject my gaze as it brims with salty tears of lust.
