It is time for the penultimate prompt of this year's April Poem-A-Day Challenge. Enjoy.
For today's prompt, write an evening poem. The evening can be a quiet and contemplative time, a stressed or fearful time, or, well, party time. Evenings can be lonely or romantic, cool or humid, inspirational or numbing. And today (or tonight, depending on when you consume your poetry prompts), evening is the time for poeming--even if you're doing it in the middle of the afternoon.
Remember: These prompts are springboards to creativity. Use them to expand your possibilities, not limit them.

Here’s my attempt at an Evening Poem:
there's always a moon
except for when there's not
& besides the stars
are shooting off their mouths
again when they should
just silently burn
