autumn deepens
leaves swirl and collide
in the chill wind
my hurly-burly life
churns with doubt

  unexpected frost ...
the ranger wraps seedlings
in black plastic
while I shiver
on a cold park bench

    when we arrive
       a cover of ice
before we leave
       a teal-colored lake
       giving way to reflection

again my neighbours rising
before dawn
a shouting match in a tongue
I can't understand

space Stewart C Baker - USA

she tells me it means
to tear flesh –
the metallic taste
of blood on my tongue

roll away the rock
& you get
