Mock Night

And there came to be dark morning
and there came to be light morning,
like the passing of the first day.

For two hours prior we indulged
in the bottomless well,
seeking to suck her dry
and quench our unquenchable thirst
until the reprieve
of dark morning to light
when our souls know only restless rest
through the mocking hours
of a mock night.
