“How The Sun Curves…” by Sofia Kioroglou

Your One Phone Call

Can you see how the sun curves
west towards the endless sea?
Can you feel the soothing breeze caressing your cheeks?
Keep watching the seagulls skimming along the crests of foam

Try to catch a glimpse of that streak of gold
on the horizon before the sun hides for
another night’s rest and savor the smell of salt
as you lick your lips and swirl it around your palate

The end of the world is not nigh
Look at all these kids cavorting like
the future is now, the future is this moment,
the future is that cry you wiped away after falling
