Jonathan Beale

At the back end of the day


Leafs and ash merge

in an autumnal breeze

Old men know that they too

Will be there soon.

The ancient door frame

at the top of the stairs (ajar).

Inviting threatening

Psychology is no exact science

There is no leap of faith.

No time to dance –

Looking from work place window

The garbage can corner

Indicates this deterministic

Universes game plan

Lost leafs and the old souls

Find another pathway

To where they are blown.
