there is a ribbon from the sunset
the wind shifts
and the trees turn away

this is the time of day I love
and fear
before despair and fade to black

angry palms throw their frailness
in a stream of air
a silver eye pierces a gray cloud

sunset is exactly like love
like gold melted
to copper is a reverse alchemy

there is a ribbon of blushing pink
then the violet
the velvet crushing agony of night

and yet the fool in me bows down
blinded in the glare
conjuring day and atomic kisses
