The Pretty Pretty Night

THE PRETTY, PRETTY NIGHT





That there it is again, calling me almost nightly now
- tony, tony, tony...
starting as a whisper seemingly beyond the four walls comes a knock at the door to dreams
requesting a rendezvous with the Singing Scheherazade of the cicadas in the setting sun
then a tango with the pretty night in Tunisia, (the pretty, pretty night)

As we leave the castle at the corner of the Gerichtstrasse Promenade
I am taking notes of things that won't happen, of lights that aren't on...
of colors that aren't there, of smells missing from the air.
People from the past and the future run amok before my eyes
thicker than spirits
in this thinking thing I mislabel deja vu out of laziness,
but it is the mandatory marching exercises before the creative hour
that is supposed to refresh us
and easier than climbing walls
so I participate cheerfully. Like a good citizen.

Standing at the curbs in silence, focused like mice on the lights,
waiting for the green man to grant permission
we go like automatons in synchronicity. Right foot first.
Each step a privilege never promised but I forget all that navigating the crowds
so I don't bump anybody and cause a scene. An Ugly American scene. So finally

At the footsteps of the neon door of the Lust Garden, clenching my invitation to alienation in hand
I bow and cue behind the velvet rope to pay my alms at the temple of the good life,
in the capital of the Promised Land.
Smiling at the doorkeeper  I lie to get in.
Someone offers me a dance card which I refuse that I am on duty – (oh?)
and confess that I am really a malcontent wallflower in the cha cha of life,
possibly preferring posing as a preoccupied poem reader in the corner painting
suffering from peerless pressure for some reason.
(I know). When there are so many other options that life has to offer.
That it's a misguided destiny thing and mischievous guardian angels..but wait

Somewhere in my notes was a romance, then a rash impulse
and a balcony and a brazen jump from the 30th floor onto a majic carpet waiting outside the window
for an interlude with the awakening of the twilight hour sky,
But I know that didn't happen
that I know it is something pretty when the night air is fresh, and calling and promising
but different on the way home cold and alone and smelling like smoke

and...wait, this part is getting all mixed up
but back to the night, the pretty, pretty night. The only thing missing is a pen
and stories that will never happened, written but won't be read...
yet want to be told anyway. Are just dying to be told. Anyway. For some reason
