Before They Tell You It’s Over

Before They Tell You It’s Over
Noah Falck

Cars fill with people, move north at high speeds, windows leak the music of our time. The surrounding hills want to begin again, have another life as a sidewalk in a one-stoplight town. The wind died near sunset, left everything feeling like an empty closet in an empty home. Night spreads out like a hunchback on a couch of burned out stars. Part of the sky is dotted with an airplane’s blinking red light. The moon bleeds brilliantly over it all.
