white curtains bellow from an open window

white curtains bellow from an open window

the villain has the hero cornered
who manages to escape out a window,
when the bad guy kicks the door
the drapes move wildly

the low streams of Brahms' cello
along with the wind whistling noisily
calms the atmosphere down to a reverie
while the veil ripples gently

white curtains anticipate police catching up soon

  6. I imagine delicate, lovely curtains and a place of calm. The aggression taking place at the place really jars. Very effective.

  17. But maybe the window is just a decoy,
    The villain poised behind the door,
    Ready to pounce.
