one elderly autumn eve

by Rhyana Fisher

hanging hugely in the gloomy dusk
the settled sun x-rays a fossil embryo
in illuminated cream,
periwinkle skeleton outlined.

a million or so years circling earth unhatched
in thrall to gravity

and i
still /feel/ old.


Author's Note: a found scrap.

I read this as 'autumn eye' love the timeless feeling in the ending, how no matter your thoughts, the feelings are always behind in a great rush and roar you can't really change.
