jake st. john | inquiry regarding change & without a boat

inquiry regarding change

why is it
that the tender
autumn winds
arrive in the trees
turning the leaves
into an emerald
rippling sea
as the summer’s
hot and steaming breath
grows fainter
reduced to a whimper
before drowning
in the breeze

without a boat

on the bank
of the Star River

the current ripples
celestial stones

dipping in fingers
trying to catch the moon
