streetside/

©2022 Michael Raven

i ghosted these empty streets
fade through and past
the song followed
i heard you sing 
hey baby hey

all the vampires hung out
street corners smoking
licking their teeth
winter was coming or leaving
i couldn't tell for the color bleed

dragging the wagon behind
until the broken neon sign
flickering in the half-life night
of bitter days

i wait in vain
for the train
these laughter-lacking tracks
painted in rust
