October Third

Autumn




October overslept today,
then burst forth from rumpled sheets,
rumbling into foggy socks.
No time, even for cinnamon tea,
and she’s out the door in a tumble of grey oilskin,
stuffing titian locks into her Brimmer.

She rakes up breeze-webs with her passing
and I feel her moving through me
on the platform, in the rain.
The dead are riding the trains again,
reading newspapers over our shoulders
and whispering to the unattended.

Hey there! I have had an LJ for YEARS. It is woefully neglected but if I had more activity on my friends page I might be more inclined to keep checking in. I *miss* the old days of LJ. I used to check it as obsessively as I do FB now.
We should *totally* be LJ friends :)
