before me,
I hear the autumn rain rise,
beat around the bush,
then straight on through the shrubs,
'til suddenly ceasing
in an aftermath of drips & drops,

for all poor excuses I encounter every day,
filling my case of disgust to the brim;

reminiscences and hidden sounds
draw close like a gang of wolves
'round a Canadian camp fire;
a heavy sense of sentience filing past
