I don’t know if I’ll see another autumn. Yesterday I got the quiet golds (the polar
opposite of Holly Golightly’s mean reds).
There, standing in an array of unruffled
aspens, I wasn’t afraid of anything.
There were no angels or ladders or voices
only white arms rising out of the earth
with black freckles and golden lamps like
fire shooting from their fingertips.
I think Adam must have had the quiet golds,
there in that proud real-life Eden standing
calm about tomorrow so he bought some
furniture and gave the cat a name.
I don’t know if I’ll see another autumn.
If not, golly gee damn. But I’ve seen this one.
