Darkness

sunset-1327536_1280-2

Sometimes darkness
feathers into the light
like dusk and gives you time
to check and adjust your balance.
Sometimes it crashes into the light
right next to your ear
like one cymbal into another
and rattles flesh and bones
from head to toe, and you must
power down to check those levels of faith
you had hoped you’d never have to use.
