Day 9: In the Shadows

The prompt for day 9 was to “write a poem inspired by noir“. I found this topic to be a bit difficult since I wasn’t overly familiar with it, so I tried to go for the general idea of mystery and crime.

In the Shadows

Muffled footsteps draw
nearer, a blanket thrown over
hurried conversations that lurk
in the shadows
of blackened buildings.
Camouflaged by looming
awnings of faded canvas,
the silhouettes lean
closer to each other
and reveal the secrets
of crimes soon
to unfold.
