Night falls like a rock in a still pond

Frogs barking loudly, like there is no universe
No stars to disperse their eternal dust
No humans claiming victory

Just a night falling in a city,
Weird frog noises from a pond
Some voices, muffled, and a cat
mewing in the scrubs

Too much light still though
No stars, no scars tonight
No universe to belittle with its might
But echo’s, a bang, a violence undeclared

And a night, falling like a rock
A universe like a thousand scars
Fragmented light, dismembered frogs,
And a barking undefined
