To make a difference in the world, you have to be different from the world.

Listen to the birds
as they fly south
high over my head
in October
Flapping in the
gray blue sky
beside the big white moon
cawing to me below
til next year
Their black wings wave
and wave
while the wind rushes
All around me in the bright
Turning brown
beneath my boots all
and wet from supper time
And pumpkin pie smiles
and corn.
