Shade of the Mindanaos

In the company of wine and strangers,
Beneath the rampant shade of the Mindanaos
It’s like living adrift, a sunset in two places
In the rainbows of light’s last dying fade

Standing on just four lines here, and I don’t think it needs any more, so as the light fades to blue here, just pause to listen for a moment… What can, do you hear?
