Before Any

13 June 24080 BC

Light breeze
carried across the prairie
and buffalo crested
a rise.

They arrived
over the hillock
for two days
and disappeared
beyond another.

No one remembers this,
not even the ghosts
of warriors,
but they breathed dust
into heaven
and made the sun sleep.

The moon never rose.
