saturday, october 9

outside it's going over into fall,
going the tone of ray bradbury and roger zelazny
lightning over the mountains two nights ago
and a crazy wind blowing down out of the
foothills, snow on the peaks in the morning
all day i nursed a hangover indoors, black coffee
and glasses of water, playing cards in a mild daze
and waiting on some event to signify more than
a minor rearrangement of tokens
