The last leaves fall, heavy with droplets from the morning rain. Too damp now to ever be skeletal. The blackbird will find nourishment in their shadows.
To leave things as we found them, this impossible task. Half open doors where invitations once warm no longer stand. Thresholds crossed and farewells unspoken.
This transcends chemistry, it overlooks the peripheral view. A new light is cast where nothing hides in the shadows.
So this is where I exit. Listen to the absolute bones of this. As you were, undisturbed, taciturn and constantly searching.
