autumn lists

specifically blue sky
clouds who cannot decide whether to fly or rip up in thunder
smells of chill in the air
plums and a few stray pears
birds flocking for migration
gladiolus swords in the hands of the first grade kids
potato digging
desperate teachers
a sort of transparent sadness
stray leaves turning tail
sunglasses failing
nights come early
huge school bags in buses
zucchini, eggplant, petit pan squash
quiet expectations
that relief that the summer is over
raw earth under the dying grass
and the wish to fly away with the cranes

say something
