Sunday 28 September 2014


Dank misty morn

swaddling shroud

giant gossamer cobwebs

desiccate into unobserved obscurity.


Dew drops

line up along the window ledge

each upturned meniscus

taut with expectation of dawning liquidity.


Daydreaming disrupted

by perimeter movements

Fall-yellow ticker tape

flows down the breeze.


Deserted suburbs

disturbed rustling

the battalion of the leaf apocalypse

scurries after me along the road

chasing me home.
