Day 10: Noir

A sticky end

in the night shadows
a cat yowls
and a lid from a rubbish bin
            [they call them “trash cans” here]
clatters to the ground

In a city I have never
there are painted images
I already know
how it’s going to end
but before then
there will be a body;
a dangerous woman; a broody
cop; cigarette smoke -- so much
smoke; and barely restrained sexual
innuendo wearing a satin robe.

in the night shadows
a lid from a trash can
clatters to the ground
and a cat yowls
