      Coney Island Sunset

      I stroll along the boardwalk
      pass the Wonder Wheel
      rising high
      and going round
      pass the Cyclone
      grinding gears,
      clankity, slow rise,
      fast fall,
      twists
      and screams
      turns
      and shouts,
      drops,
      bumps
      dips,
      rattles.

      It’s getting late,
      light begins to fade.

      The skeletal remains
      of the parachute drop
      looms,
      a stark silhouette
      in the red rust glow
      of twilight.

      I walk to the end
      of Steeplechase Pier,
      lookout upon the water
      between Sandy Hook
      and Breezy Point,
      watch the ocean stretch
      to the horizon
      and touch the edge
      of infinity.
