Autumn in Provo















So, I'm not entirely emo. We wrote two poems for class based on the style of may ayim, who was a suicidal African/German woman.

orion roams the sky too early
for this time of year
autumn had just painted the trees
and already winter has come
with her dusty self
to cover her sister’s masterpiece

how to spell winter

l
o
n
e
l
y

the letters don’t fit together
too wide
too tall
too low
bent

the blankets of white at first seem charming
welcome as a distant uncle
then dreary
they stay too long

thank God
for Christmas

and carols

really.
