Bury Me – A Poem of Autumn – 18 Days Until Halloween

Bury Me – A Poem of Autumn
by Victoria Nations

Bury me in drifts
of sweetgum leaves

Red and yellow stars,
fallen and cooling to rust
before they blink out

Brighter from the rain
that washed them against
the black banks

And more fragrant
from being crushed
as I roll over, restless,
beneath them
