midnight whisper

midnight whisper
25 & 26 february 2022

on the terrace
at midnight,
stars damp
in shine,
southern cross
on its sceptre,
a dog
barking,
______artillery,
crickets
rattling
the dark
awake,
______tanks,

sun
flowering
in buried

pockets

    1. Yes, and somehow the sounds of the actual environment mingled in mind with the imagined sounds of tanks (the rattling of the crickets as tracks), and the dog barking, artillery.
