stealing into night

©2022 Michael Raven

i went a roving
dream questing visions
under the cloak
stealing into night

i saw
you standing there
broken corner windowgaze
finger twined in tress
wrapped in shadow was i
something you might miss

i thinned between brick
and angle of a store
to snare your
sad whisper of smile
before a return to
shadowwalking and
stealing into night
