Here and gone

When he reached the last light
On the last day when the glint
Of sun winked from behind yonder rise
And twilight slips slowly
Into the gloom of night
All the racing human braining
Every thought, reasoning
One by one sapped of meaning
Till all that’s left is bestial raging
Till even that scent of
Tearing things apart
Too is faded away
There is nothing left of him
I recognize, and yet he is here
And gone
