Realignment
(Sun Series #10)

Labor Day — 3 pm

the woods seem more chaotic
crickets the only constant
(and the lack of birdsong)
on this unseasonable day
of queer yellow light
and eyes that itch hoping for rain

everything suffers a bit
dry leaves fall and branches
others color prematurely
a red mushroom shrivels
finally a pewee calls out — tentatively
wondering what time it really is
