Colour Shadows


it was warm outside

june sixteenth

i sat close to the music

so i could hear the song

you sang with your eyes

eleven hours earlier

i realized

the sun never stops shining

like your memory

casting colour shadows across my mind


i stood in the same spot

on the sidewalk

as if any move

might change the way i felt

like any thought

might make me think

about something else

the way i felt

the wind on my neck

or where it went

with my breath

setting sunstyle in the west

like your memory

casting colour shadows across my mind
