Chasing a Sunset

Across the Sound the light is bursting
Red and gold soaking the evening sky
In my car I am gas peddle pushing
Driving west at breakneck speed toward 99
I get the sense we’re all suns setting
So the salt of tears stings more when they’re all ours to cry

Just the last of my kind pleading for understanding
I’m a soul tied to earth, body bound
Inside, a million beautiful fingers
Weaving a basket with fine silken threads
Waiting on the western dip, “Hold ‘er steady!”
To capture the fierce sun when her grip slips
