Autumnal Apple, falling up


had the right idea

when he downside-upped.

Apple cart

over underhill–

self-picked, steam-pricked

one pie to fill

for Shel.

Autumn seems

to fall-up; I mean,

the sky beneath

my feet at least,

thanks Silverstein–

for the right idea

When he downside-upped.

[With special thanks to Eckers Apple Farm, where I spent my Sunday–and to Shel Silverstein’s “Falling Up.” 12 years after his death, he still makes me smile–posthumous text and all.]
