Red sunset

Red sunset (Photo credit: Wikipedia)

That red ball that you become
at day’s end;
That fiery angry sizzle
you drop at the bottom
of a sky making ready to sleep
spreading molten lava
as it sinks –
What gets you so hot
that you aggravate
the heavens?
The clouds become you
around the edges
just at that one side,
while on the other it is
all placidity, serenity.
And you pull me to your part
of the world
You sun God you:
It is where
I am aflame.
