Response: The Sun Set on the Hill
From the back of the truck
I saw the sun set on the hill
red like blood. It lit up the trees -
made them red.
I was still
but the truck. Shook
on the bumps
of the long red road
under the low red trees and hot red sun.
I could look and see
the sky. Burn with light
like the end of the world.
And the truck drove far from there
far from light of the blood and burn trees
on the red and long road
to the blue night beyond.
Notes: I do NOT know enough monosyllabic words . . .
