Caught by the River

Autumn Alegria: a poem by Miguel Cullen

18th November 2017

I'm catching these leaves at the moment, July's up, in the midsummer light, the oaks are covered in lace frost. The green leaves are each in silver frames, like something that was lost. I care — under the Chinese-lantern-balloon stars you met my parents and I grew into something different.
