The Man With Sunset Eyes

Image borrowed from Bing

The Man With Sunset Eyes

he who’s been shaking poems
into the seaweed all day,
is oblivious to the splotch
of professional photographers
rolling their expensive eyes
at each other over the little
point-and-shoot he made
from laughter and airplane wings.

The man hoists the ocean,
clouds and pelicans into position,
fluffs up the sky’s pillows,
billows his cape, and raises his wand
to pause the breath of heaven’s violins
a moment for you.
