Night-Shift Forest: An Aubade*
glinting in between
our tinted window pane,
traces of last night’s
forest of hand and teeth-
oh, what a shame!

Today’s prompt is The Forest of Hands and Teeth (The Forest of Hands and Teeth, #1) by Carrie Ryan.
The Alba or Aubade is:
- a love poem, most often mourning the parting of lovers while extolling the coming day.
- constructed at the discretion of the poet, length, stanzaic form, meter and or rhyme. although often a smattering of rhyme is present without any particular rhyme scheme.
- dramatic since it is often dialogue between the parting lovers or coming from a cuckold husband or a watchman’ warning. Sometimes dialogue is silent, expressed in images.
