Untitled from what it means to fall


I

Outside intrudes:
the walled garden, the horse chestnut,
the way green leaves turn yellow
from the outside in, lie brittle-thin,

tinder-dry, ready to tear at the touch
of a single stone on a gravel path;
the claw of a passing bird.

Inside her head there are sand dunes,
a red kite trying to catch the wind.

II

On the Downs trees are losing leaves,
impressionist curves shifting to straight lines,
the angular shape of a Picasso landscape.

Shadows are darkening into squares,
green into grey into black, linear,
stacked, like stairs ascending
or descending.

This is the planned accident of a brush stroke;
a single leaf dropping silently at night,
unseen by the semi-circular slice
of a waning gouache moon.
