Autumn is an introvert

by Melanie Browne

Autumn is an introvert,
and tries to be
ninja, using
crisp leaves
as throwing stars,
practicing day and night

Autumn hides
behind a giant
Cornucopia and listens
as people talk excitedly
about pumpkins,
hay rides,
and hot chocolate,

but Autumn is bored
by this gross display
of seasonal nostalgia,
he hates watching
squirrels gnaw
on pine cones,
and knows deer are
not adorable

autumn is an introvert,
he smokes clove cigarettes,
and makes his demon-
shadow-puppet dance
in the moonlight,
happy to be alone
