my noir apotheosis

my banal original
left ordinary impressions
on the surface of your eyes; stanzas you couldn't
get out of your mind playing carpe diem
chasing your memories romantically
while you held fast to recognized patterns,
you'd say anything with a cigarette
hanging from your lip: tempus fugit
those wisps accent your spent look;
something frozen, dead winter,
caught by the Sun, melted, a haze of steam
rising nostalgically with redolent regret
