    colinbeckett - Weekly Poetry Contest (169) Winner

    Discussion in 'Bi-Weekly Poetry Contest Archives' started by Banzai, Nov 10, 2011.

    It coughs
    By colinbeckett


    Outside, tires strike the street repeatedly,
    it coughs
    the scream of something mechanical
    pockets of night air collapse onto themselves,
    avalanche
    a late-night typist
    blasts cannons sixty words per minute
    a hundred water droplet rockets launch,
    evaporate from the bathroom floor
    spiders crunch moth exoskeleton in chorus
    those moths remain blow their noses in eulogy
    then night falls mute
    but my blood circulates, torrential,
    dust thunders, crashes to the ground
    brash bits of moonlight bombard the windowpane
    I shift my ears pillowward
    and again the gates are opened.
