Closing Time

Closing Time

Look up over the hill
through the woods there
the leaves flying.
Autumn drying up the vines and weeds
blackening the wildflowers
Yellow grass so thin and brittle
that you can look through it
and see the brown earth
as though
through the thinning hair of an old lady

Autumn trees and sky in my back yard, about ten years ago.
