42 Days with Huck Finn 22:42


Dark
blind to, 
the  civilized cruel 
clown-painted boys,
sneaking out of front 
windows,
in order to 
smoke joints,
in front of Main Street's closed 
businesses, 
down alleys,
they spray paint 
on unlit walls:
Vacume Cleaners Suck.
Scribbled-totems of their
whittled out 
lives.


The boys crawl back 
in bed before the 
extraterrestrial 
suns ascends.
They hide under 
comforters, 
from
real Vampires 
allergic to 
Night
and 
Fun.   

*The arrangement of dark and light utilized in a pictorial representation.

I attempted here to do a poem contrasting dark and light, thinking back on the days when a boy embraces the privacy offered in the night.
