A beginning of an evening was grasped by the room
whose sparse light seeped in from a solitary window.
Lain on the bed, a pencilled in person noted the square
of sunset with its pastel pinks, blues and greens
layered over a charcoal city skyline.
Moving their hand against the square
so the light was sieved through their skin like dust,
they noted how this beginning of an evening
could be anything from a painting
to a life.
