October rolls in the grass
spilling apples
from its lips

Hands riding in automobiles
pull at the sky

A lawyer wakes up
watches a woman walking
across her back lawn

Someone drifts to a kitchen faucet
bumps against spoons

A hidden record’s music
peels off the walls

The wind carries a thistle
as brown shoes run through a field
searching for October
playing in the dark grass
