Fall Spring

I didn't bathe in the spring
with the other naked people
where I'd seen that frog floating
motionless but attentive
the morning after the first frost.

This Day

The yellow wood
peak foliage time
a day with my boy
not so young now
neither one

Good bed

Back in my own bed this morning, which I do not feel like leaving, but I've got to buy a sleeping bag and rain gear for this weekend in Maine. It's colder than I'd like, and wet, but there it is.

There's got to be a little rain

The cough I inherited from my daughter on the drive down is getting worse. Today was spent driving in a foul mood that never broke. I don't know what to attribute it to. Drove up through the bone dry hills and mountains of Tennessee, Kentucky and West Virginia. Suffered some sort of loss of meaning. What am I doing out here? Depressed by snack cakes and energy drinks , CBD and adult bookstores, CWD and  AR-15s , Jesus and personal injury lawyers.
