Red Sky by Raymond A. Foss
Red Sky at night, sailorâ€™s delight
or so the tale goes; but I wonder
what those sailors would have made of
last night. Red sky didnâ€™t stay up in the sky.
Our hands, our features, the buildings, the air itself
were red, not just a tint to the sky above.
A hot red orange sky hung down to the ground
for a few moments, before the thunderclouds
cast a darker shadow over all
Red sky, all at warning.
