Song of the frozen sunset

The impossible moment
between day and night
the eminently possible
of love and other demons
sunsets are for romance
and heartbreak
disappearing from accusing eye
and appearing in heartness
of the beloved
it’s the silhouette
bearing kiss and gamble
risk and conviction
rippling in color and water
cascading from cloud and fire
the palm oil of wick-end days
burning into heart
the brands of sorrow
and bliss
in immemorial union;
makers of our final memories
of lucid insanity.
