Purple night, I envy you.
Twisty murders underneath your sheet
They don’t watch you witnessing. Silent.
Do you weep for them?
Or do you snigger at the hide and seek?
Inky dark hounds you
Billion stars. Maybe two,
cannot wipe you out.
The orange glow at rest now.
This time you can be you.
When they offer you silent prayer,
to save them.
The others look
to run away safely, not to get caught.
Do you let them know
with your many colors
That you neither grieve, nor save.
You just be.
