Orange Sky (This One Empty Chair)
By Nick Hawkins

There’s something unique about reminiscing beneath an orange sky,
long vacant stares ascending toward a wilderness of unimaginable grief and pain,

now raining their sad denouncements of how life really advances without light,
whilst remaining loyal in the art of conversing cerebral cushions to occupy this one empty chair . . .
