By Mabh Savage   Invisible invader of my lawn One day here, next gone Or so it seems Made from the essence of dreams. From purest white to shaggy black Forcing through the earthy crack Twixt cyclamen and grass You are the season come to pass. I watch you flake; like ash Into the wind,

Sep 13th, 2017 | By

By Mabh Savage Caught red handed, Well, purple really, Juice dripping down Guilty chin. Bucket half full Promising wine, crumbles, pies; All lies If I don’t stop eating them Along the trail.
