Goodbye to Another October

sitting around

not being noticed

I felt compelled to spend some time

with the drowsy river

make tea and carve the measurement of time

only several cigarettes can afford

to spend alone with it

listen to it’s groaning

about it’s health and that it’s

barely scraping a living from its banks

but yet still it flows

wanted to say goodbye to another  October

which has its own obsessive issues bouncing its leg

and wanting to repeat and repeat

at a more frequent pace.
