Blue Light Above

light fades before 
      darkness as
the sky has turned
   dark blue

because night time
      is very close


      after sunset
western mountains
cast long shadows


      blue light above
as night slides down


   we feel wounded
by daylight's desertion

   light feels better 
      than darkness
to daylight creatures 


tail-less monkeys
fear night's secrets

things change quickly
      when there's
   blue light above


      shadows might
move unexpectedly
shivers on our spines

      nervous monkeys
we huddle close together
