balcony X – D.e.e.L

shivering, chirping, sipping, smoking, steaming, breathing
no more orange leaves
no more bright reds and yellows
just branches clawing for the green grass

no more flowing stream
just muck, black muck with brown leaves
blocking every chance for escape

it’s daylight
so no orange light above the parking lot
of the school
not many cars driving the far away street
only a single white car has passed

the candle is not lit
coffee grows cold
single bird chirps alone
he is lost
migrate
like you’re supposed to do

all of the trees look as if leaning away from the balcony
they are all falling
dying
the cool air killing

killing all but the lost bird
that even alone
still calls out
hoping to be found
