When No Star Shined

Once, when no star shined
on slick, black, asphalt roads,
the murky wetness
of November's watered nights
a freedom-feeling and
strangeness-sense inspired.
The moisture lubricated
sluggish mental cogs that
all the dirty, dry, autumnal season
had rusted tight and atrophied.
Wildness no man can tell
I knew then.
All November's labored length
my nightly notions filled:
my bacchic spirit soared and flew,
traveled far, saw much in waking dream,
along a single street, wet
and splotched with light from cars
which coughed their fumes
as they passed my momentary immortality.
And now...
time has come when I no longer
feel delight to revel in the wildness
that I knew:
senses, now subordinate to sense,
defuse the spell
and November nights are merely
murky.

    senses, now subordinate to sense, defuse the spell at wisdom's will....so true, yet memories still linger, only slightly dulled by the passage of time. Imagination still takes flight.

    wow. I really enjoy the read of talented writers. To be pulled in at the opening of this piece and to be carried so well throughout the work takes a special skill that you show here. Very good work!
