Writing from the Outside in – day 6 of 7:

Writing from the Outside in – day 6 of 7:

Here we are – day six of seven. And it’s starting to feel like Autumn is taking hold. Switched to flannel sheets on the bed. Flannel sheets with a monkey print. It is monkey sheet weather folks. This is a bittersweet situation – I love the monkey sheets – but I could use a bit more summer.






The sweater in the attic
inside a plastic tub
has never seen
the July sun or an August beach.

It blinks its eyes
like a mole popping from the ground
in September
when the lid gets peeled back.

It toasts the Autumn sun
with apple cider
and marches off
to a clambake.
