Random Poem:

Leaves and the Inevitable Season
dmartin

All things fall
 1
in October,
 2
all the best
 3
is mostly over,
 4
for cold means cuddles
 5
and rain brings puddles
 6
and we'll have each other
 7
until one misfires
 8
 
 
a word,
 9
or a hanging syllable
 10
waiting for an end
 11
that only pours down,
 12
miserable.
 13
 
 
You're green,
 14
then orange and red
 15
And maybe I, or time
 16
has become your evil bastard,
 17
but you're only closing in on dead.
 18
 
 
Because this tis the season
 19
before that other fucking season,
 20
that breathes in the unreason.
 21
It's just that time of year, don't you know,
 22
when we change all our identities
 23
and learn to just let go.
 24
