Serotonin: two poems

I.

Tavern candles flicker / beyond

silhouette creases / whispering /

"She's here" / as Nightfall creeps /

on tip toes / with shoes clutched /

in Her hands / advancing evermore /

stealing warmth / from Earthen skin /

Tender is the Night / unvarnished /

approaching / unloved / uninvited.


II.

Beijing-made bikes / pedal rapidly /

rotating / with increased speed /

home / finding light's / last

gasps of breathe / minutes left /

they arrive / home / while drunks

stumble / into bars / women /

into stores / searching / like addicts /

for Serotonin hugs / to refill /

and replenish / malnourished minds.
