Are Sunsets Fairer

are sunsets fairer than noon-time skies
or is their beauty in our eyes
with promises of coming nights
when lights are dimmed and passions rise
at the looming hour of beasts and prize
in bursts of scarlet and pink surprise?

when we focus on the breeze
do we hear or just surmise
the distant moans and lustful cries
of dreamy deeds and little lies
in muted voices and resonance
accompanied with countless sighs?

when it dips across the line
while the brilliance starts to fade
as the images drift away
should we think that beauty's dead
or the promises that were made
were induced by the color red?

Are Sunsets Fairer
