Kingston Bridge by Streetlight

Traffic rolls past late into the night,
under inky black sky
outlined by viscous ballpoint street light.
This disposable sight, smudged by litres of rain,
is broken by hastily scrawled thunder
drawn against my window pane.
Observing the commuters from afar,
They become drawn dogged shapes, hurrying to and fro,
while my pen runs out.
