Autumn’s Fall


The arcade music from the circling neighborhood ice cream truck has faded in tandem with the outdoor temperatures – but that hasn’t stopped me from waiting for it.

The lawn mowers and the leaf blowers have already been prepped for their seasonal take down – though there is still a fair amount of work left before the first snow.

Those of us who, with somber words and sardonic images, yoke old age to autumn’s leaves expose nothing but our own deviousness – for sleep itself rarely foreshadows death.

Still, it’s a perfectly suitable time to recall how important our lives are to those with whom we share them – and a perfectly sane time to realize that few beyond them will ever know.
