EQUINOX EASE
(9/7/17)

the sun arcs
ever lower
in the sky

the hemisphere
sliding slowly
toward fall

the grass
barely grows

the mower
makes fewer
appearances

the air conditioner
mostly
dormant

temperate
nights
allowing
a more peaceful
sleep

maybe
a sheet
for cover
toward morning

the warm
water
of a shower
actually soothing
again

the coolness
of the predawn
hours
causes consideration
of a jacket

the windows
kept up
on the drive
to work

I arrive
to step out into
the fresh air
of these
dying days

I have
hope
once again

for extinction
