adverbs

from unrepentant keys

maiming

unsuspecting readers

narrowly

missing the point

plump, wet drops of obsidian

scrawled lackadaisically

… flinging adjectives

castrating connoisseurs

with color

murky

yet,

each silvery word

impregnated

with meaning

The Reader

His voice

is the night

my eyes dilate

as if under the influence

of too much wine

His voice

is the night

weaving moonbeams

into words

that flicker

and illuminate the dark

that otherwise

would surely consume

the last star, leaving no dust

His voice

is the night

his words

wash over me

like whiskey in my blood

making me limber and free

and I dance

with a grace

I do not posses

~Melanie Thomason
