Fall into Night

Fall into Night

 

Having slept late,

Perforce,

To my condition

 

It’s too soon

Now, the three-o’clock

Time when

The day turns

As it must

Toward autumnal

Night

 

And we notice,

If subcutaneous,

The knowing

Sense of

This;

 

Inside autumn leaves

We face

Alternatives:

 

To go dry-wilting

Into brown days

Or to

 

Flame like novae

 

In glory of

Expiring red,

Yellow tears or

Tears,*

Last bright orange

Bleeding

 

Dwindling into

Joyful or stressed

Evenings

Of our

Distinctive seasons

autumnal surprise

surprise

eating caramel
is like eating fall
I don’t try the sweet stuff often
and so had forgotten
its tie to the season

but there it was; I had a
bite—first bite—and fall came
pushing through the taste

I am thankful for the bond
of taste with remembrance
that brought a whole time of
year into the small place here

where I nibble while waiting
for the next thing, after
this, to write or say
