We see art deco sunsets and
paisley palm trees
         on a citizen ship

                  in cheddar seas.

Up goes the sun -
an impressionist's blot, while

nor'easters push pigments
through pastel parking lots.

In a sense, we are blind in
this rush hour mosaic

       in a photovoltaic landscape

               on a Californian wave.

In another sense we're naked
as the greenly palms flit

       as the sun waves goodbye
               to our citizen ship.

    I sense a little bit of a double-entendre with the sun waving goodbye to your "citizen ship," Chad. Quite a provocative write. Cool descriptions of paisley palm trees and pastel parking lots, but I think you're making a comment that goes far deeper. Just my interpretation, but I sure like this poem! Love, Carolyn
