The Autumning (autopsychography)

Autumn child

made of leaf-fall

dying light

the return of water

through the vertical distances.


I first opened my northern eyes

to the giving way of the sun

in all of its




to the cooling call of the south.


Striptease season

discoloration season

last of the yearly seasons,

I saw earliest

that the naked form

the barely lit form

the long-awaited form

is not the satisfaction

of our deepest desires.
