October Repose


Neck cushion snug, visor shading,
I slip away, Chasing Frances in my lap.
A yard over whack breezes sways an oak
and whack plump acorns whack plummet
whack whack on the hood and roof
of Miller's pickup, dented from past acorn volleys,
whack whack whackwhackwhack

sounding like Mable's 22 Browning T-Bolt cracking
across distant Dry River Gap

then Miller starts his chainsaw,
and his wife the leaf blower.

So goes the nap.
