Tayne Ephraim | Carpe Diem

Under the cracked yellow walls

of movie sets

In the bar

by the old river, where candles

float away

in tiny paper boats

In painted wicker chairs

wild-eyed

drunk on youth

In tailored boots, leather

denim jacket

4 a.m.  on dead streets

joy-riding with drug dealers

through curtains

of misted rain

crashing the bike

and making them cry
