View through kitchen window















Red glow
white heat
electricity
housed in black power cable
before this
slice of suburbia.

Mango glow
and a magnesium flash:
reaction to sun setting
on a sultry subtropical day.

A scene
melting away
into twilight darkness;
I close my eyes and see stars.

Red glow
white heat
black cable
bodes bleak
for this
slice of suburbia.
