By
   Above me I see white.

Dusk is late tonight

and the moon is nowhere to be seen.

Night really lives in the corner of the sky

hiding from luminations.

But I have no doubt

that night will come out

and invade the heavens with fiery crystals.

Soon, the sun will be forced to show its defeat.

Sure enough, night descends,

spreading her star-crossed sheath,

stifling the sun and biting the light

with sharp and deadly teeth.

Darkness crashes in.

I cough, choking on the black mist.

A clock chimes -

it is the unnamed hour.

A candle flickers.

Night.
