Dead Leaves - Poem by RIC BASTASA

dead leaves are scattered everywhere
under the trees
surrounding this old house where we live

unswept and piling up like some layers
of our memories
some rotten some cracking some turning to dust
the snakes learn to hide there
making their home
and some worms and some rats and some seeds

begin to sprout
when it begins to rain again
