Under the Color of Night

“If you tremble with indignation at every injustice then you are a comrade of mine.” 
― Ernesto Che Guevara

Under the color of night, a full beaver’s moon shines
with an ethereal red bloom obscured in vagrant clouds
while pristine stars shine through the blood-stained veil
wearing their alluring light like a shroud.

As the last eclipse of a momentous year bleeds
Is this an omen of hope and good things to come
Where justice and simple truth prevail
Or will all the good we’ve done be swept away
By the violence and lies of the uncouth?
