FOUR SUNSETS

Exploding sun sets the sky ablaze,
while in a spotless Nyack kitchen,
a woman sautes chicken breasts,
roasts potatoes, tosses tomato salad.

Sky sizzles, orange streaks
slice through blue, as a Tarrytown poet
takes up her pen, changes her mind,
races downstairs for her camera.

Sky yellows. Grey/black clouds
and pink puffs reach high, higher,
highest, as a siren warns of unseen fire
swallowing trees in Sleepy Hollow.

Sky unfurls in blue satin pleats
in Piermont, above a flattening sun
which sinks into its own reflection
in the cooling waters of the Hudson.
