Through The Aluminum Sea - Poem by Robert Rorabeck

Sun set itself through the aluminum sea—
Paper and toy angels dancing
Through a midsummer's shopping mall
While my wife slept—
The colleges green but empty, friends
And the sad look in your eyes, like a caged
Animal burned to the ground—
Beautiful flowers made to kneel by
The rain—a baby kicking in a pregnant
Mother on the Titanic—or through whatever
Beautiful justice brings the night,
When the bats come singing to blind women—
And the fox dreams of kissing the grapes one
More time.
