change of plans

the sun was just
dipping below
the costco roof
and the western sky
was an unblemished
hazy half peach
split by sharp horizon

i was on my way in
intent on quickly
getting a hotdog
and more than a
backward glance
on my way out

but the glowing
low hanging
almost perfect
moon in the east
made me forget
about chasing
the afterglow
