The world has become an enormous mouth.
Or a senile teenager fumbling with a fire sale chemistry set.
Silence, and solitude,
arouse their favored ebb
within the subtle gloam of twilight.
Twilight is a meek and intrepid lover,
an inscrutable pair of slippers
softening your steps as you cross
from one passage to the next, to the next,
where lost hours seed and seduce your invictus
into an exponentially stunning fade.
