Fall Harvest

by Holly Mitchell

October 2014    


Ears of corn
without butter or salt

brittle as birds
pull their skirts.

They have heard enough.
They say, Reader, eat

this page. Eat here
around the pumpkins

dimpled like a boy
so punk rock as

to drum them on a strange
suburban street.

Feast already. Turn
these spoils into sugar.
