October

Naked torso jutting
out top floor window
cigaretteflick
onto street below

recoil
return to faceless frontage
anonymously looking into greyday
stillness

windowcleanerscrape breaks
the loose leaves silence

the yeast has its paws out again
yellowsmell settling on lungs
a gulp of breaded air
thickness

the mist is deceitful
barelythere lightness that nevertheless
settles
on sloping shoulders
muffling footsteps to muted trudge

a sense of early hours donotdisturbance
lingering
into afternoon.
