On way to work
Saw chopped branches
lying on their side
City preparing for
hoary winter while
Never say die
shimmering gold
stragglers
clung on defiantly
shivering aflutter-
Like those
valiant prayer flags
fronting distant glacial peaks-
soon~
as next step
city made them
minced meat
and I said to self –
waltz off the earth
like those leaves,
flags flying,
never accepting
defeat-
