october rain - aspen duscha


This rain tastes of


pomegranate


as it washes away


the last cinnamon stamp



Autumn's leaves imprinted into the concrete


to testify their presence


before


the wind peeled them from the sidewalk


one last time


into the sighing, aged grass


to surrender themselves from our memory


and into the earth.
