Watching Dusk

Flotsam jetsam
gin and tonics
on the deck

Captain Nemo
torments his organ
the same tunes every night

We talk you and I
melodies free us
from time through time

Stark pine boughs
arrange their faces
breathing mythical realities

Kites and swallows
growl as dogs hover
slavering jade air

Chewing memories
salt, lemon, cinnamon
the sky's a traffic jam

Charcoal vortex
millions of eyes
twitching grabbing

History pounces laughing
daubed in smears of incense
we cannot run away
