Complex Municipality

After enduring temperatures of well over 90 degrees last week, this morning’s cool is biting. Here, in my living room recliner, I look up through the window and consider the trees.

Squirrel

Above us,
avenues

of branches
weave together,

twist themselves
into a complex

municipality
where autumn’s

promise of winter
touches first

and the quiet
thunder of little hearts

beats only to baffle
death one time more.
