suspended moment

(a leaky bit of moonlight)


under a dark-haired driven
threadbare quilted sky,
driven bursts of clawing

and the muted cry
of unglazed small
-boned crows
dreaming murder,
death –
muffled blooms
and fretful sleep.


Cool visual and prompt from over at 
Miz Q

    I adore how the title plays with that parenthetical: “(a leaky bit of moonlight)”


    “and the muted cry
    of unglazed small”

    “under a dark-haired driven”
