A Crepuscular Scene

(After a photograph by Al Dimalanta)

Watch the sun setting,
an overripe orange of light
sinking into the darkness

of the sea. Watch the ship
sailing to distant shores,
destinations and destinies

you can only dream of.
Watch the seconds slip by
like the wind whipping

your face. Watch and weep
for these transitive things
inevitably disappearing

before your bloodshot eyes.
