Autumn

I missed you today,
when my mind and my heart
went wandering among the
fallen leaves of autumn and
along the back-roads of the memories
of our summer.
And my heart called upon you
to hear nought but an
empty echo in the alley
as the evening rolled forth, rumbling, and I
knocked down the ten-pins of life
beneath the strobe lights with my family...
...And I wished you were there
to count among them,
to whirl me beneath the twirling , cascading,
remnants of the summer's splendor
in the park
and applaud my funny, victorious wiggle
as I made all life's empty
wooden wine bottles fall...

...But I pushed you to the back of my mind...

I missed you today,
That's all.
