sunsets have no use for me
sure they are pretty to look at
may be even poetic in some sense
but they are possibly the most drab thing
God could ever think of
I mean, of all the things you could make pretty
You chose sunset?
what use do I have for the melancholy
or the smallest of sorrows that creep up
everytime I look at the sunset?
Do You want me to acknowledge Your power?
Do You want me to tremble in awe and wonder?
Do You want me to pray to You?
Do You want me to kiss Your divine arse?
if You do
then a sunset isn’t going to work
it makes us wonder though
it does make us think of the fraility of life
and the inevitability of death
and all that other inconsequential nonsense
we infer from real
and often inanimate things
I am sure it’s quite romantic
but then apart from resting her head on my shoulders
and coming up with more challenges
for me to tackle
the sunsets don’t do much for my girlfriend
but I am being too harsh
sunsets are good for one thing
they tell me when I can finally start
and when I think of sunsets after I am drunk
they sure look good
and for some time
I forget about God, about pretty things, my girlfriend
and just think about the Sun
hanging out with his friends
celebrating the end
of another hard day at work
shining for somebody else.
