To Bed Without Gothic Jill

by Luis S. González-Acevedo

Sea green bluish eyes…
piercing through the bedroom window
dazed by the sea of empty glass
penetrating the darkness of the cold night sky.

Sea green bluish eyes…
anxiously expectant
catching glimpses of gothic ghosts
wishing they were the sunrise amber of glowing embers.

Embers burning in midtown…
Slowly drowning in the haze enveloped swamps…
Drowning embers…
Taking with them these sea green bluish eyes
into the sea of broken glass
shattered by the cold, dark winter’s night.
