Knoepfle 11-13-03

fall break IWU

why did she abandon this cup
tea still drying in the bottom
white cup with its green collar

preoccupied I guess
going home for fall vacation
and her mother with a lap full of worries
her brother using her barbies for spears
her father disturbing the sunday
with his new riding mower

it is autumn
and a scattering of leaves

it is amazing
how helpless she will be loving them
but that will come later
