Fall Season

Fall Season

a seedling is sprouting
          a baby is born

it starts to grow
          he starts to grow

rooted firmly in the ground
          his adolescent frame burly

rotting as it gets older
          corrupted

chainsaw to the base
          noose like his magenta tie

timber
it tumbles
          he leaps
          from the chair

oh
          what a wonderful fall

His first chapbook, "Suburban Rhythm," was published by cc&d through Scars Publications in September. It is available both as a free read and as an ISBN # book. His work has appeared a bunch of places, so google it. He calls Elmhurst, IL his home.
