Evening Sunset Gods

the sun licks the trees red
I can feel it
breathe it

dingdongdingdong .oh.

I'll show you discipline
discipline dree

uncomfortable silence and heat
smothering me
things will get better

outside there is cool breeze

ashah ashah keeliyee
what do you mean to me in that place
time to get dressed

the inspiration leaves and there is no one left
some things just weren't meant to be shared.

Author's note: "ashah ashah keeliyee" is Ewe (or Yoruba, I forget) and is not actually spelled that way, but is pronounced that way.
