Fall Fell


One minute
it is September
and the next
it is October.

One minute
it is fall
and the next minute
it is winter.

Beautiful yellow aspen turning on the hills
surrounded by the bitter brown of beetle kill.

This morning
we add
a coat
of white
for contrast.

By this afternoon
I might be wearing
shorts, t shirt
and my $2.50
Wal Mart flip flops.

My John Kerry shoes.

So sad
that he will be remembered
for such a thing.
