Coming home from work

 

sunset

I saw pale blues and glorious gold

in serrated stripes
and puffs of pulled cotton

irregularly perfect
patterns

etched onto the evening sky

in such a captivating way

I thought I might get distracted
and die

while driving into the sky–

deeper and deeper

as if venturing
further and further

into the Mandelbrot set–

said to be the fingerprint

of God.
