Transaction~by Paul F. Lenzi


 

 

Transaction

 

figures scribbled down sides
of brown paperbag lungs
readjusted to inhale the
change in the air late sown
produce marked down to
reflect crisp demands made
by autumn all harvest sales
final their seasonal clearance
will empty the fields giving
pause for the earth to refresh
with a deep-drawn exhilarant
breath full of savory purchase
invested with redolent tang of
October aromas conducive to
turning for sleep well disposed
to forget wayward summers
