In the Small Hours

 

Chad Hensley

 

a giant round moon
swallows the night sky
pale gargantuan presence pressing downward
bathing the land in ancient monolithic hues,
like foot steps from a colossal race striding the countryside,
their ghosts buried and forgotten beneath crater and dust,
shimmering in space.
