Trashed Sunsets

By Dominic Loise

The best sunsets 
are in back dumpsters 
put out to pasture
lighting up the alleys 
stretching out the spectrum 
shining off the stench 
no one bothers 
to just sit and lay
their eyes across these skies
sipping in this kicked to the curb 
light give one last burst of colors 
before it falls to grey
