Sunset Over St. Luke’s

Rose ribbon rolls out

above belfry silhouette

as created sun

sets over an erection

to deity’s unmade son.

Downtown Sunset

Between planes of grey and black,

super-saturated mauve

bleeds in to glove skyscrapers

fingering upward against

the purple-streaked clouds of dusk.
