The Night Star

public beheading
with a ticket to the show
given hours in advance
days really
and there we are
holding out hands to the sun
hoping to cancel its trajectory
as it burns an arc across the sky
in silence
slipping away
without so much as a second thought
nothing to say
[to hint]
it ever noticed
a thing
