Stone and Shadow

It’s a wet, wet day in northern New Jersey. Rain has been and will continue to fall, pulling autumn from the trees.

October Rain

Leaves,
curled
like gondolas,

the color of lips
and chocolate,
stream

past the mailbox,
beneath
the tall grass

arching over
the road’s
dark shoulder,

through
the sewer grate
where the water,

panicked and cold,
echoes
between

stone
and shadow.

    1. This is what I strive to do.

      I. Direct treatment of the “thing,” whether subjective or objective.
      II. To use absolutely no word that does not contribute to the presentation.
      III. As regarding rhythm: to compose in sequence of the musical phrase, not in sequence of the metronome.
