Ghazal Ephemera

Meteor streaks an onyx sky,
thoughts vaporize without a tail

Words have seized the winds,
usurped control from ideas

Page absorbs a mutant slang,
lines malinger with an attitude

Inspiration silhouettes reason,
unblemished by banality

Grant language mellifluence or
condemn the poet to monologue

Sounds like a poem in the making, what a lovely word mellifluence, (yes I had to look it up!) thanks for the education.
