As The Sun Sets - Poem by Hussein Kassim

As the beautiful sun sets behind the tall mountains
And the cold wind surpasses the day’s heat
They would have closed all their curtains
And prepared their kits
And covered their faces with masks
A few would be holding their coffee cups
Not knowing what awaits them that night.
