    a season named Fall

                                      fall blown umber Summer burnt out

    fall the sky’s razorblades

    tin in winter bolt of leaves

    rot bitter dying sharpen

                                            true December steel—


    fall entrails of summer’s Beast

    scattered wound of summer’s Dog


                                            fall, fall did I know you before—

                               did you swallow my eyes

              falling far from the Sun—


    how now to run?
