And Then He Cackled

November 6, 2007
By Laura Reichardt, Dillon, CO

There was

A star.


Another.


Another.

God said
"good."

But for the stars
We could not see
The blackness
The corruption
The black-skinned
Babies dying on the
Ground
The pain of the
Earth
The hidden torture
Of a repressive society.

So the stars fell
They left nothing but
Night.
