Fog Night

No one can tell what descended faster, the fog
or the darkness, (I asked around) and still,
it got black too quickly. They all said

it had to be magic, this city-sized cloud
that fell on and about the
city. Strike me awestruck the way a 21st

century city could get this light-less; we’re in such
a bright world these days. Not tonight. It’s a slog
to just gaze down the street. No visibility, so every
neighborhood is a maze. I pray not too many drunks
wander from sidewalk to middle-of-the road. Not many
cars can swerve as they should. Death can dance with this fog.
