live without the ands and ors

maybe instead of they are black just black(see example below) cool imagery sets a mood

The lights are out
abandoned highways
black
crusted with broken spiderwebs
swollen under pale stars
ripe with illuminated memories.
All of them twisted ('maybe just twisted here ?)
through dusk with fog
mothed haloes
Waves are not able
to pray across shores or skylines.
Only, here or there, a slow breeze
cold and crisp with its lines
whispers hymns
through gray water.
