sunset

I can still

See

And feel

The cracker crumbs

On the blanket,

With bits

Of cheese

And sweating cold cuts

In the setting sun.

Wine

In plastic cups,

And memories

Being born,

As the day

Ended

In a burst

Of color

Before fading

Into a darkened horizon.

A thin blanket

Over our shoulders,

And arms

Around

Each other,

Fighting

The chill

And desire

To leave for the car

And the heater.

Wanting

To stay

There

In that moment-

Shivering

For so many reasons.
