Dusk

Dusk presses

& melts

washes shores

tangerine



Time stretches tempo

slugs....

comes to a crawl



Slides veil off

of calming oceans

dwelling between my eyes



A pale storm

lurks in parched breaths

comes to incite fading ambers



Burnt orange moment


Consumes me whole


I taste your name
