autumn equinox :: 5:18 pm

as summer spirals
sways, spins and swirls
we waver at your hands constant pull

wallow and weary we savor the last drops of
heat and the headstrong ways that overcome our
doubt, disbelief and desire

a commotion we maintain through solstice into equinox
through dusk till dawn

an internal combustion
a combination of regret and relief
hope and hilarity
defiance and desire

we are uncommon myths
figments of our sad imaginations
shadows in the deep set eyes of summer

and we wait
for leaves to drop and nights to lengthen
until all we hold tight in sweaty palms
are stars and songs of summer's past
