fall gathering place
fall gathering

at this junction
         with passage of time
they huddle, hide,
         seek comfort beneath
mortar, brick — in dirt
unearthed, spray sand
on worn, cement stoop.

away from the sun
         beneath ample apple droppings,
they cloister, cling, collect
         with the dew-spit beneath
bright patchwork quilt,
         gently air-tossed — play
upon the brittle green.

to blue, constrictive wrap
         hugging this construction,
wood frames, concealing wire, pipe,
         their waywardness within walls,
warm in window wells
ladies lay. I don't know how.

in a gentle abode
         with all gray glooming
remain, age with them,
until one spring day they
         flee from father — far, far
in sky-portal escape play,
or down, in maw earth
                   stay.

to green recliner outpost,
         deep repose, while they collect.
dependents disembark
at attic, wall and floorboard —
to eave, lamp and rug.
         accept — this is love.
                   the home hearth awaits
         white nights first spark
together.

before we all fall to ash,
to mother,
where we will lay, decompose
and not freeze
while the sun slinks away
