SEPTEMBER AIR

freshly washed

of august humidity

close-pinned to the line

between summer and fall

late september air snaps

blue against

maple gold

SUMMER FALLS AWAY


August cicada

— tinnitus in both ears —

hot-skewers the brain

twilight of summer

kingfisher cacophony

— a night wind rising

first back-to-school dawn

vermilion suns — sky and bay

twin Chinese lanterns

crisp September wind

sizzles the sere chestnut

— summer falls away
