A Time Between Gods

all Is
in the autumn sky:
red and orange
dark blue and black
and a cool wind 
kissing the sun goodnight.

all Is
in this musty den:
blue and flickering
images and shadows 
in the minds of tired women and stooped men.

all Is calm
but for the patter of children
wandering alone
through horrors and tangled brush.
