Poetry – “Night”

 

night

 

Night // by Jennifer Patino

 

Night spreads across the sky
like a bruise,
so many shades of plum

& soon,
darkness hides the hurt,
& cicadas mask the crying

Another day
swallowed by midnight blue
& stone pits now litter the floor,

a monsoon of new fruit
opening the doors to dying stars,
rejuvenating in bitter juice

before dawn opens weighted eyes
to see the garden dream’s demise
& so many rotting cores fading to yellow
