The Alcoholic Moon


Each Halloween

The alcoholic moon

Begs on her knees,

In the stiff

Nicotine breeze,

For skeleton keys

To unlock

The ghostly trees,

And the freight trains 

That wheeze,

Then freeze

With Parkinson's disease.

Melancholic Wisdom

Wonderful work, the title really caught my eye. I love the way you call the moon an alcoholic and how you used nicotine breeze. Its all very original and unique. Really great job
