Sunset Night





When you leave

you venture above

dormant pavement

This is a memory

This is a moment

You feel all the night’s breeze

just the right fleece

warm and worn

Towering pines

outlook houses preserved

in street light glaze

Zooming in

A crowded caterpillar crawls

to the ocean’s shh  

to the firepit’s crackle

Content smokey eyes

a constellation’s

glinting grin

The wind stirs you

into that calm tired

You plug in the music

that sweeps you home
