november salad

toffee apple carthorse
fat pope orchestra feel

the changeling in the air
greengrocers shudder

where the fayre is pumpkin
& pumpernickel pumas

sputum is your middle name
so the parsnips parp

cotton buds ‘n’ crones
shimmers in the bones

haberdashers gargle
diluted black currant cordial

quantum leafs in the dark
branches bearing all

shitting in the woulda-
shoulda-coulda twilight
