downpour

Solitary grey man dances
with a red umbrella,
feigning freedom outside
Edwards’ wine bar.

Summer dresses cling and
blur through rainy glass.
The scathing edge of rejection’s
glancing blow bleeds
flirtation to a bitter end.

    What absolutely said.

    Very succinct again whilst depicting and communicating so much. Plus there is so much music again in the language used.

    Very, very nice.

  3. oh, this captures a moment in a small trickle of words. bittersweet.
