Always Gets Me Down

~After Karen Carpenter

Pitter, patter, splash

Wish I could push back

Take that all day nap

October sunflowers stay strong

with no sun,

but I’m ready to throw up my hands

admit the season’s won.

My stabbed backyard tree

bleeds red leaves.

No need to talk it out.

We all know what fall is really about.
