The Fall of Rome
The Fall of the Holy Catholic Empire
The Fall of the year
when dry blue skies
blow winds of change
along the rippled edges of lakes
and through the quaking aspens
and forests of flame and sun shades.
Bone weeds tumble through
the prairies of suburban neighborhoods,
getting snagged on hybrid lawns
and ground back into the earth
under tires of traffic and boredom.
