"AUTUMN"

You force leaves into scampering.
Brown creatures: they cross the road brown and crispy clawed, and with every smokey wind, summer is burning
and ashed.
We bag our leaves for trash, watch them pile.
Oh what are we to do with such shorter days,
addicted to color,
craving color,
and all those desperate trees sticking their hands in the fire?
