autumnal blues


it is that time of year again

when you can watch the light

changing to an orange glow.

the air feels crisper,

the days grow shorter.

there’s that sinking

“back to school” feeling

in the pit of your stomach.


i hate to get overly sentimental

about the end of summer.

i start to really study the light

and the way it hits my window

and floods my bedroom.

i have ritual films that

mark the end of summer.

“ghost town” is always

a favourite,

as is “the virgin suicides”.

i can never sleep well

after watching the latter.
