A Sadistic Season



This poem and photograph were published together in 

Dredging up Demeter: An Autumn Anthology of Poetry

The darkness stakes its claim on day
Intent on taking life away.
The leaves begin asphyxiating,
Starved of light, they're suffocating.

Beholders gawk in wonderment
At gasping breaths so candescent.
Reverence earned by mutating,
Starved of light, they're suffocating.

Darkness closes its savage grip,
One by one leaves begin to slip.
On the ground they're congregating,
Starved of light, they're suffocating.
