Laser Night - Poem by Theresa Haffner

crazed
crazed neath the crazy moon
i wandered
convulsed with a craving
i didn’t understand

above the mondrian roof tops
in the chasm of the sky
the stars unfolded in a drama
of living and dying

like the crack of doom
the dawn of disaster

below the tangled
television antennae
and tenement fire escape steps

on the sidewalk
of crashed crystal dreams

the dreamer wept

your eyes were beautiful
sparkling like laser cut
diamond jewels in the
early morning light
