Lay Fallen

To Shari Mae
At Pheasant Farm a guest of autumn yet an inch thick paints a countryside in charcoals stodgy reds and umber browns as temperatures slow drop and daylight shrinks to Summer's plaints while darkling slants of light entomb the frozen lifeless downs a countryside in charcoals stodgy reds and umber browns in spite of protests withering by picotees and pinks while darkling slants of light entomb the frozen lifeless downs benumbing barky toes each pinched by chilly pilliwinks in spite of protests withering by picotees and pinks beneath a barren finger clacking sharp against a wind benumbing barky toes each pinched by chilly pilliwinks though loud in fury breathless beats a writhing cornstalk thinned beneath a barren finger clacking sharp against a wind along a muddied brook dried up of wine to free extend though loud in fury breathless beats a writhing cornstalk thinned till autumn sleet impales old age to seize the Promised End.
