Random Poem:

End of line

I see the light
from firecrackers dim,
as if poured into hidden spaces.
The sky is a blank wall.
Not one star blinks
or glows,
Like a poem whose thoughts
are unexpressed, halted
past the end of line.
I hear the horns fading,
isolating the echo
of a breath.
The air does not waver
like you do,
words stalling in their place.
In the powder-filled air,
my words were clobbered
by the mist.
