Sunset on Mars

Sunset on Mars (NASA photograph)


Sunset on Mars

You awaken to mountains without tree line...
death-breeze... slow-settling red-ocher grit-veils.
Sadness grounded, you slow-roll toward eternity...
a water-gone Mars... burnt chocolate on cinnamon. 

Distant metallic scuffle of large Martian mammals,
armor against thick body plate?  No... it's wind...
an amethyst sky, a blinding pewter-blue sun
at horizon... broiled.  This is palpable dust-to-dust.
