AUGUST'S END
(8/28/09)


summer
such a cruel
heartless
brainless
distributor
of discomfort
has lost its burn
earlier
than usual
this year

limping
gagging
bleeding badly
it meananders
to a cold
moldy
grave

still
with a smile
and just a hint
of menacing
madness

it knows
that we'll soon
have September
staring sadistically
into our
eyes
