                                       THE VERMILLION LOSS

                                                 vermillion
                                      sun rise pants for new day
                                               clouds dally

                                                    grief
                                           wears dry eyes
                                                 stunned

                                           blue hour blues
                                  Dusk weeps for each lost sun
                                            midnight dreams

                                                 vermillion
                                     sun rise pants for new day
                                              clouds dally….
