Wheel

Sunset brings children home:
sun bronzed, scraped,
laden with adventure,
trophies, disappointment,
lessons of the world;
unready for a bath,
a story, and bed.

And when my sunset
finally calls my old bones,
that return is set into motion
with the directness
that stops all clocks,
moves all trains,
sets all suns.
