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.
