Continuance

The earth is afire!
The earth is afire!
Look! ‘Tis true –
o, how the sun
burns violent in
colors of crimson.

Curious, this little
town affords itself
no worrying. The
rush after another
workday settles
into the quiet of
late-afternoon.

Twilight.

The ocean of night
rolls in. High tide,
an earth afire is
no match. Clear skies
paint equatorial
constellations and
this curious little
town drowns itself
to sleep by the humming
of window fans
and crickets making
much fuss over
little things.
