october rain - aspen duscha

This rain tastes of


as it washes away

the last cinnamon stamp

Autumn's leaves imprinted into the concrete

to testify their presence


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.
