AprilPoWriMo 3

One night of waiting 
seems insufficient
in retrospect

given the dramatic
pause of the previous
afternoon

just enough time
to tell the story of
the universe and

how it was spoken
into bits of being
while the flame

sputters in the background
oblivious to us
putting our candles out

with incandescent air
at least night ends
turning its back

to eternity
