Watching Time Settle

“I don’t know why everyone
Likes sunsets,” she announced
At the top of the mountain.
“They’re like funerals where we watch
The day die except instead of
Mourning we rejoice at the pretty
Colors, but the fact is that time is
Dying a slow death and here we are
Just sitting and smiling and taking
Pictures, oblivious to the motion of
The world.” I couldn’t disagree and
Said, “Look at the city lights
Rising.”
