Autumn

leaves

I inhale cool of the morning air
Watch as streaks of gold
brighten in your hair as if
lightened by peroxide and summer sun.
Is that a new shade of lipstick,
when did your shadow get so tall?
I watch as you play strip tease
with the summer’s foliage
down to the bare bones of winter.
I breathe in the crisp exhale of night .
