Rhetoric

There are some questions a person only asks at night
When the lights are out
And darkness creeps up to their skull with its fingers.
Twinkling stars burn with much offence from here
but yelling at them only makes the silence slap harder.
And so
These people retire every night
Not to sleep
But to figure out what they might do when light finally touches their face.
