Night's Wake

Villainous verbs

Vibrated with violence,

turning the rancid words

that saturated the silence

sleeping in the suburbs

into the glint of gunshots

that could soon be heard

bleeding out upon a sidewalk

more  lucidly sanguine

than the distant siren's cry 

loudly strobing

night's  wake

on the edge

of a wailing sky.
