Friday Noir: Sleep The Long Night
The night sprawls before you like a giant’s yawn.
It’s is usually when the action starts.
The cons, the grifters, the hustlers, the make, the take.
It all happens under cover of darkness.
Other times, the night seems endless.
Sleep is a distraction.
A walk, a smoke, pint in your pocket, brim pulled low.
Keep to yourself, try to lick your wounds.
Maybe plan the next thing.
Think about her.
Dream, baby, dream.
You gotta keep the fire burning.
Soon you’ll sleep the long night.
