late august’s early fall

August 27, 2013

nights
draw in
as summer’s colours
fade
to fall

**

leaves fall
in august
that ‘no’ still echoes
above
the waning sun

**

Cape Cod
through the rain
my mouth is dry

**

rereading
old love letters
yesterday’s candle wax

the length
of an apple’s shadow
blossom still falls
between
blinks

Dry leaves wet

September 24, 2011

Fall equinox
the gap between
clouds.
________

I squint up
at a fuck-you blue sky
and smile
at newfound
knowledge.
________

September tears
shed leaves litter
summer’s past.
________

Pine needles
in a haystack
harvest moon.
________

The wind sighs
I stop
to inhale.
________

Brittle night shatters
into a blink
of stars.
________

Cool shadow
the sun shifts
its weight.
________

September bleeds
chlorophyll hemorrhage
ashen-leaved skin.
________

My lines
break..
equinox.
