Audible Fall

Autumn inaugurates with puzzled children
pouting in classrooms as others stare like parents
slowing down at the drive-in theater of a car crash
wondering how one should feel, witnessing
filaments of leaves craft the hours into dusk.

M. N. O’Brien received his B.A. from Roanoke College, where he received the Charles C. Wise Poetry Award. His poems have appeared in Drunk Monkeys, Right Hand Pointing, and The Ekphrastic Review, among other journals. He lives in Hudson, New Hampshire, and feels awkward writing about himself in the third person.
