Death and the Night



The black rubbers bawled,
Smoke strangulates the night.
That angry boom,
That brought the darkness
To its feet,
Surpassed the rubbers’ howl.
A body winged
And grounded viciously.
Lights out.
The night silently loses its breath.
As the black mist rise,
The darkness became sightless.
The stench of the occurrence
Changes nature’s aroma.
Then the flickering and flashing lights
Restores the night’s vision.
The weeping vehicles give the gloom a voice,
As I urge the sun to shine.

Earle Francis Brown Claim this poet

I was born in Montego Bay, Jamaica. I was told that I can write, so I wrote and continues to write. I am currently living in Cincinnati, Ohio, USA. I enjoy reading "real" poetry. My favorite books are the Pslams, Proverbs and Songs of Solomon.Poetry is not just vocabulary, and use of metaphors and formats. Don't be tricked. Poetry should speak life. I love a poem that tells a story. The most memorable poems are the ones that tell someone's story. I don't care about ratings; the truth is always hated. People are people where-ever we go. more…
