autumn's patchwork pattern weaving

For thou

All the ladies in pretty dresses

Champagne in flutes
Flirts in Armani suits

Waiters and penguins
Serving wine and cheeses

Musicians playing tango delights
Diplomats avoiding land mines...

the various scents tantalising.
Then I smell the bison and throwing
back my head I howl to my pack.

sparkling spumes,
that elatedly
lick and tickle
flashy red...
