Autumn heart


a fall
of golden leaves
tumbling in
brilliant air
by the black trunks
then steeled on
the soaking

a wind
out of nowhere
pinwheels the yellows,
some frantic angel signs
while I deploy
the camera app
with fat

a biro
draws an oval
on an a4
quadrants, flow, atria, ventricles
See how the blood… again
and again through
dark halls
tremulous now.
