Day 9 National Poetry Month 2013

Today NaPoWriMo says to “write a poem inspired by noir — it could be in the voice of a detective, or unravel a mystery, or just describe the long shadows of the skyscrapers in the ever-swirling smog.”

Also of interest on their site is a link to Small Press Distribution .  they say it is a “there’s hardly a small press volume of poetry (or fiction, or nonfiction) that isn’t available from them.”



Colors of the evening twilight

Spread across the river’s bend.

Images of great cathedrals

melt now over water’s edge,

Memories of blood and water

Hover on the edge of mind

Slipping, sliding, falling down

To lavender oblivion.
