Missouri 2017

The insects have all gone quiet.
We’re surrounded by sunset.
The sun is almost gone:
Is this all there is?
This is our first
time seeing
the sun
a vortex.
And, instantly,
we are something more.
The dark cracks. Suddenly,
the great eclipse has finished.
The insects return to their song.
