Night Moves

Dusk is when all the otherwise

Forgotten bogeymen

And banshees come out.

Fear, resentment,

Unresolved fights with the deceased.

‘Remember that unbearable

Heartache from 1970?’

Ancient shadows,

Which no longer need their substance,

Wreak unbridled vengeance.

The raging dog

Of an ill formed conscience

Gets to have a longer leash

And freer rein At dusk When light slowly flees.
