Friday Noir: Sprezzatura

(c)JerseyStyle_Photograph_Sprezzatura_MG_7008

The air weighs heavy…

Of tobacco, humidity and indecision.

Midnight sanction time.

Finger on the trigger, but which way to go?

We’re a long, long way from home now.

And even longer till we get there.

It takes double time to play both ends against the middle.

Sprezzatura.

Studied carelessness, as the old Master’s used to say.

Makes no difference at this point.

They’re going to build our gallows high.

And dig our graves deep

The air will then still be thick with humidity.
