{the accord of inertia} poem x e.l. jayne

{the accord of inertia}

birthday candles were extinguished,

children frolicked in their ghostly garments,

the looming maples released the last of their leaves,

october came and concluded,

families gathered to feast,

evergreens were dressed in their icicle draped branches,

all the transitory animals migrated to mexico,

neighbors lined their dwellings with lights,

and took them down.

with time,

blackened eyes and dragonflies,

withdraw into the velvet mountains.

–e.l. jayne
