Providence by Proxy

Sovereign authorities drink their wine
and puff cigars in secret rooms
while the masses they shepherd
languish in poverty;
favored with surfeit,
they watch paupers
starved of care

Autumnal Relief

The skeletons slink
back to their crypts
as the bats and the witches
cancel their flights;
the air grows cooler and more crisp
as pumpkins transition
from jack-o’-lanterns to pies.
Autumn lingers a while longer,
stripping the trees of their
kaleidoscopic garments
and redressing the faded viridian grass
with a coarse browned carpet–
Winter’s arrival is fast approaching,
but Autumn’s company is savored
while it lasts.
