Men of the Night






Café Concert

Edouard Manet, 1847

Walters Art Museum, Baltimore 


Men of the night 

don’t like the light 

always readying for a fight 

at the merest slight. 


Women of the day 

want to show them the way

but how and when 

and why?


Children of our time

need another rhyme

if they are to surmount

our pasts.
