Just Keep Moving

 sunset requires notice

whether on fire, windswept, clouds that darken early,

sunset requires payment

evening rituals, meals, entertainment,

the goddess of night demands her due

in order to keep moving on

many hours left till dawn

sunrise requires notice

whether anticipation, dread, breathless un-named fear,

sunrise requires payment

daily rituals, work, remorseful thoughts,

the exchange of anxieties demand its due

in order to keep moving on
