Becoming scarecrow

I sit in the garden

after work to enjoy

the decay of fall.

Oak moths flutter

reaper fairies aflame

to a serenade from three crows.

The splintered easel begs

a torso, mesh me

in moss, cobwebs.

Limbs walk in driftwood,

twig fingers poke from compost,

a pumpkin rolls off the adobe wall.
