causes us to squint

evade our eyes;  look away


The late afternoon sun

slowing traffic yet 

not quite low enough to make shadows


almost forgotten

it is an afterthought 

a distant memory three hours after dark


The only lights then from slivers of moonlight

a few distant stars or

the flickering green and red of small airplanes 


flying across the horizon at

low altitude 

trailing only a low hum
