Perseids

We race against the sinking sun.
While stars are glinting into light,
still dimmed by blinking traffic’s run,
we race. Against the sinking sun,
erasing stress in brilliance: one
star falling through the deepening night.
We race against the sinking sun,
while stars are glinting into light.

(Trying out a triolet.)
