It would beso poeticif I dieddistractedby a rear view aestheticjust staringat the sky. ‘Poetic Aesthetic’ is a poem from a collection of works I found within my various notebooks and hard drives. Some verses may be accompanied by sketches and others by much more. This short poem is about getting caught up in the past. It came to me while I was driving down the on overpass as I caught the sunset in my rearview mirror. I got so caught up in the aesthetic of the sky that I forgot I was in the middle of traffic. Thank you for your time.
