The sun became a tiny bright spot
in the closed black of my eye
uninhabited by sky
Then in my periphery
everything blood orange
yellow ultra-violet

Two boys play basketball
behind the fence
I want to be awake -
Somewhere a jet lands
a cat stretches for an instant
the world breathes out-
A sun sets deeply
