This morning / woke up on wrong side / of debate.

Bowl of bones / tells tale of deer friends / de-antlered.

Another wet day / dreary doldrums seeping in / my spirit dampened.

Solitary rose / its purpose unshared, emits / fragrance of many.

After checkered past / we're checking ourselves into / a checkered future.

Rooftop shadow line / higher now, each day, same time / days are shortening.

Two trains blur / mournful Doppler sound / howling horns.

Cold October rain / there is only Autumn now / Summer forgotten.

Fossil fools / trade flesh for plastic / on parade.

High unemployment / but so many jobs out there / noses, chins, necks, eyes...
