I cried for sunset
On a Friday
At the water’s edge.
It went so quickly
And the sand, so cold,
Just ceded to the ocean
Where another day
Lay dying.
I cried, and in the wind
My tears said nothing
For the waves that turned,
For flushes grasping
Hopeless at the scale
Of every blood-red moment
Stolen,
Bitter painted beautiful
To slip away,
And only faces watching
Helpless from a blanket
While the water edged
In closer, and its saline
Mist a lovely kiss
To make me think
I never cried at all.
