AUTUMN GRAFFITI
(11/7/11)


compressed
lines
of barometric
pressure
conspire
to maliciously
vandalize
the vicinity
with leaves
from our huge
oak tree

they
blow against
the neighbors
homes
seemingly defacing
the exteriors
with a tell
tale
auburn hue

the culprit
is evident

I go
to the garage
retrieve
the rake
and attempt
to erase
all evidence
of trespass

although I see no one
blinds and curtains
almost imperceptibly
applaud
their approval
