One Evening, by Eric J. Smith

Beyond the curtain
The colossal orange moon
Climbs above the tree line
East of the barn
Illuminating the cornstalks and
Flooding the yard with light
Revealing scores of bats
Careening crazily in erratic laps
Seeking, finding, feeding on insects
Twenty feet over the dark ground
