…and good night

pantages hotel
jazz bistro
bay street – victoria
q.e raceway
hard wired surface track
that fog
that water
those cars and their
headlights
the stop lights
the sounds
the left
hand
right hand turns
the crosswalks
the sidewalk surf
midnight tide
over
concrete
the
music
the
meal
the candles
the
inside warmth
and outside
cold
the
walk back and
the lobby
the
elevator
the
room…
the bistro night
still in our
blood
the sound of voice
and piano
still
following us to the
window
past
the bed.

the

view outside

the

view in this room…….
