I don't know if you have ever seen a sunset
The way I have - many times before
Either going down a mountain or
by the outline of the sea
I always wondered why the colors blend
bringing on dusk with a different view
Dusk being the entrance to another time zone.
I wondered if the earth wasn't a circle
but a square, if I could just walk towards the sunset
and touch it before it goes down
Somewhere below in the earth's hemisphere
And I imagine that from where you stand
you would see the outline of a shadow
which would be me and I would be known
by painters as the Sunset Silhouette.
