how leaves fall to earth by rock-a bye-leafy.

30 Sep

i saw a golden leaf across the street yesterday.
it was suspended in mid air.
i felt brave because it wasn`t a skunk so i walked closer.
the leaf was hanging by a single spider web strand,
just levitating there like a prop in a low budget godzilla movie
and then later that same day it was gone.
i wanted a word specifically for the life of a leaf on baseball`s last day,
the 162nd game swiveling back and forth on a thread
and then gone.
