23:37

Out  of  the  window  are  backs  of  houses
A  faint  sound  of  slow  gutter-water
Outside  is  dry  and  crystal  cold

The  garden  grass  is  black
Nets  dull  bedroom  bulbs  from  sight
Altering  shadows  created  by TV

Lamp  posts  turn  the  sky  to  crimson
Switch  flicks  amber  to  the  right
Woman  at  window  sets  flesh  free

Downstairs  comes  into  view
Blue  kitchen  glows,  a  cold-cut  feasting fright
Half  naked  man  tears  up  poultry

Squares  are  filled  with  darkness
Lazy  air  is  the  only  noise  at  midnight
Lights  extinguish  leaving  low  visibility

There  is  only  black  and  red
There  are  no  stars
