“Now in November,”
by Annie Finch

Now in November, as I face towards home
pulling my living behind me, and my dead,
the skulls of fire widen into a road.
November turns into a room of leaves
and lets them fall around him. Then he goes,
and where he stood, his body blank and bare,
only a halo of shocked twigs remains
spread on the still green, still elusive grass.
