the carving


                        the thrown pots
                                   plant in dirt

            have you ever
            held a pumpkin
                       its plump-ness
            gave it a slap?

                                   the trees
                                   leafless now

                                   casting nets
                                   catch us / the orange / small candle

                                               I’m personally
                                               quite emotional
