Old Man Peeking

From his apartment window
he can see--

two crows huge on a stripe
of choicest limb

neighbourís blinds not yet
unmasked

young spruce preparing
for winterís charm

curb needs replacing after
twenty years of tear

cars surviving in bodies
of rusty mode

and Fall leaves clumped
in wetness again.

An old manís morning sight
aware and bleeding life.
