Duc du Nuit Noire by Meaghan Clyne

<br>what's "duc"? figured out "...of a dark/black night", but that's it.<br><br>was this about vampires? it had some of my favorite words in the language, like Pangea, and they pointed towards something/someone immortal, or as pervasive as the ages and passage of time. it also spoke of an escape, since the storyteller says her object of attraction transcends society's teaching, norms and temporal conventions. but it's not a healthy relationship, he/she are like weeds, growing on reality and not looking too at home while at it.<br><br>liked this one since it was longer than most poems, and i like poems to be like shorts, much as i want coffee to resemble chocolate milk and red wine coke.<br><br>Lee

Hey Lee,

It's "Duke of the Black Knight."

Jay R
<br>Um, "of the Black Night", not "Knight". And it probably should have been "de la nuit noire" -- "nuit" is feminine, so the added 'e' on 'noire' was correct, but "du" is a replacement for the hard-to-say "de le".<br><br>Robert 'nine years of French and I've forgotten 99% of it' M.<br><br>P.S. On the other hand, if Meaghan meant 'knight', that would be 'chevalier'. But 'Duke of the Black Knight' doesn't make any sense at all.

You can't wait for inspiration. You have to go after it with a club.
