“Soho Nights”

"Soho at Night" by Dan Nguyen

“Soho at Night” by Dan Nguyen

by PoeticMeditations

Roomful of poses mirror-studied,
Tinkling glasses and cigarette voices,
Laughter rehearsed – not too loud or vulgar,
Anecdotes with a sheen of urbane wit,
Ensembles selected for just the right effect,
Mannered emotions straight from the Method,
Flowing undercurrent of brazen flirting,
Air electric with possibilities nocturnal,
Contained in space and time on these Soho nights.

A 19th-century romantic poet living in the 21st-century. The Romantic poets, nib pens, candlelight, waistcoats, and pocket watches are a few of my favorite things.
