Autumn
    by dl mattila

sheds
 scarlet hued,
  crunch-n-rustle, bone-brittle leafchips,
 airborne whirling windships,
inebriated petals guzzling

chilled
 autumn swill.
  Stunt pilot yellowreds crazy-eight
 overhead, featherweight
drifters on blade-burnished air. Swirling

trees
 dance striptease
  while whispered leavings from lofty berths
 parasail down to earth’s
muted palette of felled festooning.
