there are sunsets people talk about
but you sit on your porch
twirling your hair and smoking cigarettes
looking at everything next to you instead of
everything in front of you
and you think, this must be a metaphor
for how you cannot move forward

you keep missing the sunsets
it is winter now and you are still outside
in slippers and a t-shirt smoking cigarettes
do you even know that it is winter now?
and you also don’t know that the sunset
has a different backdrop than summer
you still haven’t looked
because you don’t want to know
how you haven’t changed with the seasons
