Inspired By the Turn of Events on the Wheel of Reflection

the night stretches longer than it promised at the start
as everything complex reduces to a single point.
soon, the sun will hoard all color from the sky,
pulling it to some unseen depth,
leaving only this dark and infinite moment
reaching forever to the stars.
some other life looks out through the haze, it must;
but you can’t see it, and it can’t see you.
some other life, retreating, turns to walk away,
as you, too, avert your eyes to the earth,
and something more solid than what you had hoped.
