Cantankerous & watching the sunset

Sometimes let's be silent, the bones of this window are showing again
underneath the paint. The affection bled out, just like the passing months.
We've searched under the mist & the earth trying to lose ourselves
to something other than our hunger, letting our fragile skulls play
underneath the drama of live oaks, the sun sank
& tossed its remaining light into the cloud's translucent shrimp flesh –



the worst of us are sunsets,

weaving night reckless with head lights
blinking in and out of city streets

& linger there, waiting
until their point of breaking.
