Creative fun in
the palm of your hand.

It's not all colourful leaves and a pleasant crunch underfoot.
When autumn transitions,
leaves return to soil, coiled
in foetal positions.

Rain falls in arid valleys
onto their organic corpses,
like dust clinging
to taut skin.

Grief shiver by gravestones.
Tragedies mouthed like prayers
to rekindle bone-

-and the spectator moon
pours ink into buried sky,
diffusing outwards
the intoxicating memories.
