Here it comes boys and girls,
YES ! That time of year
once again.

This is entitled:


October Obituals

If they knew
they'd be dreaming,
arboreal screaming
nightmarish
ends,

these wretched
dead things,
in the wet wild
3 AM.

Wearing the reek,
cast off clothes
city streets,

worn much too
long, wet down
to skin,

mold on the make,
in the night branches
shaking, breathing
hard fought,
death of the
season,

nocturnalist
storms, throw
their dead
by the path,
in their wet wild
wrath,

screaming,
their last, this
ripping from
branches,
leaf avalanches,

northeast winds
slash, like an
amputeur's
knife, in the
dead dying
flesh,

arboreal death
leaves now bereft
of life, souls thusly taken,
season ends
breathlessly,

maple leaf,
death of their
multitudes.
