Some Local Star

At what point does the sunrise
not become a sunrise?

Something taken for granted because it
just is.
Hanging there silently in view
with great power
but also
great anticipation
maintaining a gaze
over an ever disenfranchised
and careless lot.

When will a sunset cease to be
a sunset?

Just some local star
fading into the distance
giving the night a few hours to shine.
