They were observant
so they saw that
the night was already black, unbroken by pinpoint stars.
Black even before the moon swallowed up the sun
leaving only a ring of white light for breakfast
with nothing to come after but dark days.
They could hardly believe it
but they knew
only black days could follow
such an apocalyptic event,
an event that would
eclipse all others.
That would be
a prelude
to a world without light
a world without life,
an apocalypse.
