Theodora (Theo) Onken

Moon Shadows

The lily white brillance
Of the silken full moon
Engages the shadows
In the alleys of hardened goons;

Stoic but fused with crimson infection
They-the guilty hands of crime
Are disfigured from the sinners stain
Their insolence breaks open their grime;

Lurking ever deviously...
In the first flush of night
The truth-it buzzes continuosly
Compliments of the moons lily white! ;
