Greenfall

All the leaves blew down last night

as if trick-or-treating children

conjured candy and trees together.

Pumpkins stared, yellow-eyed,

never having seen such a fall of green,

from whose veins they could still suck

the dappled moisture of Indian summer….

–from “Greenfall” in The Other Side of Thunder (Flarestack, U.K. 2006)
