It has not been happening forever, this apparent cycling of the sun, around the 
earth - only about 4.5 billion years. Light vanishing as the sun is rotated 
away and behind the horizon. Pigeons silently retiring from dropping white 
bombs on the objects below. Forms recede into black night, colour fades into 
invisibility; stars blink into awareness as the scattered light in the 
atmosphere recedes. And the night people, grasping at and fleeing from their 
dark dreams scurry into the dark below.
