first fall
waters so clear
the bottom startling
air cold. All the
heat of summer now compressed in
clenching chill.
A relaxing cold for once.
Can finally wear a down coat and revel in bright orange in red at the
same time.

blue skies
orange skies
the sun sinking
behind the Walbran
rays passing
through green water
breaking in front of me
and surprisingly
nobody else.

I’m trying to evoke
this in
my office cooled into
the 60s for clarity
workmates can’t stay long
maybe that’s it
your own down coat
cold wind in your hair
and just enough distance
