Street Corner Muse

Out of the blank dark she comes to give it all away.

A world full of nights living in her eyes

Cigarette between her pencil thin lips 

Pacing the chessboard floor 

Desperate, the siren call of her past

Bleeding upon the altar of dead men’s words.

Closing the door on all the rest
