Alien Lights Just Before Daybreak

lights are so

eerily beautiful

early morning

after a rain


haloed against the

smoke and cobalt

of a cloudy sky

just before the sun

burns it away

how they float

with phantasmal grace

against the ink of black

pen stroke forestry

writhing on the pavements

in halogen ecstasy

quick silver tracing

past the dead pool of

divots and ruts

brimming with acid rain

how i long to sit

splayed beneath the alien beams

a sentience i can behold

yet never truly


drink it in

til the sun purges the night

and extinguishes

all other light

the sun suffers

no pretenders

I currently reside in Indiana where I am taking classes through Penn State University to complete my Bachelors in Finance and work for a non-profit clinic. I was always passionate about reading and writing and I intend to use this blog to hone my craft and to entertain others. Please feel free to reach out and provide feedback or to discuss my work.
