Voids (a poem)

Watching a lot of Pink Panther cartoons today and pondering omissions…

A night without words
silent depictions in cartoon colours

Space for breathing
maybe a twinkle of an eye

this time without witnesses
a blank record
of the uneventful

Vampire boots
in a display window
beneath a halo of pink

Oh, that magic feeling

Tethers and feathers
a night of secrets
in pink and black

A frame without a photograph
a scene missing in action

Oh, that magic feeling

A conversation without words
sighs and blankets
truth without fiction

a fiction itself
a poem in conclusion
