venus

love has been poised
over the horizon
for months now
twinkling in the west
falling away
shortly after sunset

tonight she hid
behind a veil of clouds
promised to return
each dusk
through the end
of the year

after which she’ll rise
before the morning sun
and be lost
to this late sleeper
until the next
evening apparition
