And Maybe You Do

False hope sun. The leaves turn in on themselves. 
Fields of pumpkins get ready to grin. 
Optimistic mystic windows close. 

It doesn’t take long to straighten out the dust. 
Find a job to do: something that you have been putting off -
Treat the task as if you were approaching the one grand defining 
Moment of your life. Trick yourself: imagine that you have forever. 

A bird on the wrong side of the glass panics her wings 
When the way out is straight before her. 

Collect thoughts, their residues 
Like oils in the palms of your hands. 

When you move to a place of warmth others 
Spell out what it’s all about.
