We Chose Hooks

do you remember
those nights
we placed hooks in our eyes?

waiting in our sleep
to catch the darting lies
that swam inside our heads

do you remember
those nights?

we should have walked
the chrome stacked streets
that rolled like silver eels

where stub ends sailed on tarry keels
in that vanishing space between
the night clubs gaudy hush
and necessities capital morning rush

before the coffee,
before the bread,
before the morning headlines scream

but we chose hooks

I like this Paul. It flows, it leaves questions, it's poetry.
