Another doozie from Jac Green. Take a look.

Awkward Silence

Sodium lights flicker;
a cheap imitation of penny
bright stars
strung out in the blue
of the night

Nicotine tipped grass
and perfumed dusk
A pallid moon takes
centre stage,
bowing to Venus
in the distance

This is the work
of some lazy, talented god
Drunk and in love
eyes half closed,
avoiding the truth.

I don’t mind that I’m alone;
a shadow tips the bottle,
lips, crushed rose.

There’s always beauty in the end.
