No title

On a rainy night
A man walks across the street
Towards misty faces
He can see
Through frosted glass
A black and white movie

The music plays
Tones of grey blues
In a bar
Under a steel bridge
With femme fatal
A black and white movie

Everybody has a story
There’s nobody to listen
He walks in
Drenched in city smells
And orders a whisky
A black and white movie

Near the door
A wood phone booth
At the bar
A poker-faced bar tender
In the corner
A smoking dame
A black and white movie

As I sit
And drink whisky
I look around
At the world in color
And sometimes
I wish
It would change
A black and white movie

    Sometimes it would be easier to see the world in black and white. Yet, we see in color which makes it all the more difficult. Good poem.10+ (Report) Reply
