When the Autumn Fell, There Became too Many Leaves

Hello Crisis,
here is your term paper
in a system of broken selves
multiply two, always reaching
ten problems with solutions

in the age of youth
I conspired to socialize
with old age new to only
successive rapid failure
falling my leaves with
pathetic sidewalks and cracked streets

when a loss of prized possessions
brought me to tie an impossible knot
around you, then sharpen your heart
and cut your feet when you limp free
never a truth so loudly spoken
as you and I, a story
you'll finish in a moment
while I labor on in regret

in visions with no future
I see the childless mother,
singing empty lullabies
to her faded broken heart
