Autumnal Brooklyn

Dirty Windows inthe Rain
It's time for sweaters
and maple sugar candy
and all the 
Long Islanders
to go up to my hometown
to look at leaves
and spend money on our apples.

I may even have to join them
this year.

Funny Little Plants
Despite my crippling allergies
Autumn is my favorite season.
Layers
without hats and mittens.
Warm drinks
without snotsicles.

Oswego Beach
And sitting out in nature
watching the wonder of the world
as it changes.
Breathing our last breaths
in the susurrus caesura of a park.
