the sun hangs angry and red
two hands above the horizon
like a sleepy devil’s eye
burning through smokey clouds
though soft and orange
i am punished for looking
it scars the inside eyelids
i see its echo when i close my eyes
i will see its echo
when i sleep
and dream blind

I love this. Especially “though soft and orange i am punished for looking.”
Thanks very much!
My favourite line is ‘two hands above the horizon’ – that’s a doozy!
Did you ever do that? I heard you could measure an object angle from the horizon by placing one first on top of another.
I have never done that. I’m on holiday though so me and the horizon are catching up and I can try it.
