welp
unknown

of grief, deciduous

a welt to turn, inside out, just to leaf
 1
to beat again. i was
 2
 
 
responsible
 3
 
 
for you, i am
 4
responsible
 5
for the lack of you,
 6
 
 
     and autumn telling me
 7
     there is rigorous beauty
 8
     at work in all this wilt -
 9
 
 
          vigorous goes
 10
          the duty of the silt salt
 11
          acorns
 12
 
 
          leave behind. freedom's no
 13
          freefall of sugar
 14
 
 
          in my mind
