Los Angeles at Sunset

and the palm trees are hanging in the golden air
looking down at you like monoliths bathed in flame

sunset is at your feet
fat and wide and warm
gold and glinting
stars sparkling in her eyes

you're a movie star
and so is she
bathed in gold you two
bathed in gold is the town as well

the sun is down and everything is silver again
and we go to the top of The Observatory
look down upon the sparkles in her eyes again
