Low and Golden / new poems 2011

10,000 Setting Suns

In the beginning a sense
Of insecurity permeating everything
Along the path where unsure steps
Impeded progress, more like a wish
Than a promise waiting in natural settings,
The smoldering plastic nights smothering dreams
Along with years and years of, "Starlight, star bright..."
And a chorus of tomorrows that only came
In the wake of destroying a love
Dragging me down into the emptiness
Of security, a quicksand where wishes, dreams,
And stars sink with 10,000 setting suns.
