sunset.png

I gaze out at a tie-dye sky.

think about that action

of stubbing out a cigarette,

so mundane and intimate,

intrinsically cinematic.

 

a hollywood cliché.

 

I can only ever see

the corner of a rainbow

from my suburban backyard,

the whole eclipsed,

obscured by buildings, cranes and trees.

 

contemplate meanwhile

the sadness of a grubby lace curtain

fluttering in the window breeze

for all the world as if it’s free.
