Murder Before the Moon
by A.J. Huffman
Emblazoned wings, a silhouette of ebony,
take flight, feathers breaking
against an already dying sun. They sense
impending night creeping in to stalk an
already slaughtered sky, know it’s devouring
darkness matches their own. Desire
pulls them. Like a tide, they flow into carrion
cover, wind echoing their silence. Ascent is their cry
of allegiance to Artemis. They await opening
of her lonely, pallid eye.
