By Izzah Khairi

Night knits the mountains close
and hazy lines shoot high.
A half moon rising low and dim
quietly moans a tune;
the wind is at a howl;
the trees are a wobbling drum.
The lake ripples—
the main event is about to occur—

Though it is nothing special, really,
but celestial dead bodies that light up
our little souls.
