Sunset Blues

“If I should meet thee
After long years,
How should I greet thee? —
With silence and tears.

– fr. When We Two Parted,
Lord Byron (1788 – 1824), British poet

 

SUNSET BLUES

remnants of golden sunset –
filigreed beams of horizon frameless.
in the darkening orangey hue
i see you:
face generic, hair genetic.

your image, in a maze of haze,
just a trace in the blaze
disappearing.

ocher lines criss-cross
ions of woes and eons of lows
in this emptied beer bottle,

like my empty mind
as I gaze in daze
at the shifting shades
of the slowly emptying sun.

then light empties… into night.

– between
ions of woes and eons of lows
are amber tows.
