Pierces the sky

like an arrow,


like a bomb

and disintegrates,


to the ashen ground

like rain.


after another

robbing darkness

of its reign,

boasting of radiance


and not its own.

The raucous ends

when sounds and sparks

succumb to the night


to sustain themselves.

While everyone lies

in slumber,

light creeps in

and claims

the year.
