(.november is waking

 

in the crisps   of cold weather ,brisk

 

with its crystal blanket

 

           .the same blanket

 

           that october sleeps

 

           in ,to              slip straight through

 

                                the soil

 

           into its next year)

 

 

 

           .this is where i want to begin

 

           ,at the start of something  .i hear

 

           it’s the best place of all

 

           to commence stories ,while things are ending

 

           and things are being

 

                                 created

 

                                 as well
