another section of my poetry book is going to be called EARTH SCIENCE

sometimes it gets brighter when the sun is going down

and it has been cloudy since morning

we will feel the same way we have for hours

but will notice it more, that this is how we are feeling

because the light is different it is strange that the streetlights are on

you say it looks like night in the middle of the day

i say it feels like there is something wrong with the sun

we are standing in a parking lot

the thing that makes the most sense is when you say that it will probably be very beautiful when the sun explodes

i can't think of what to say that won't annoy you

and it becomes a little awkward the way we are standing
