 Kate’s poem:

AUTUMN
Autumn is a scenario:chairinbackyard
season of parting and transformation,
brisk winds, early frosts, fading flowers,
a cool well of finalities.

Right now in my back yard
the lawn is an ocean of fallen leaves
on which one lawn chair sits abandoned,
drifting out to sea toward winter.
