Grassland

If you look closely enough the windows come alive

with lights that burned out long ago

and for a moment the night sky shines like midday

The dead beneath it hum tunes

rambling toward this vision’s edge

and when they fall they will carry the stars with them

black curtains once more a cloak on the face of night

The grasses will bend and sway and take a bow

in tribute to their final passing
