Sunsets Working is a 24-page poem written slowly by Kayla Guthrie over the course of 2 years, exploring the hour of dusk and its relationship to sorrow, waking dreams, and spirit voices.
Why did I think my mind was defective? I was so viciously, viciously moving, all the time, into despair like dipping into a cold, still pond; a private winter while the sun warms the air that wraps around me, strange and welcoming. Indeed, even at night here, the dark holds the heat of the earth.
