“rain-splattered streets...” a #tanka (6/18/19)

6/18/19: prompt-free

rain-splattered streets

an air-conditioner’s hum

from the next office

the fleeting time left before

morning Regents proctoring

my full awareness
a walk between the roses
transforming my day

Normal vampire pale as death
Warmed over

Hunt his prey from twilights fall
Till sunrise

Biting necks
And drinking blood not so sweet… 46 more words



wren feathers at rest
my grandmother’s hands fold
like wings in her lap
