eye of the devil (20160723)

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

    1. Did you ever do that? I heard you could measure an object angle from the horizon by placing one first on top of another.

      1. I have never done that. I’m on holiday though so me and the horizon are catching up and I can try it.
