Sundowner Town

empty church strikes October’s sky
pungent old wood, lacquered white paint
the taste of earl grey passing by
retrace steps of worshippers below
those friends of worms, soil seeping in
the narrow chute of mind’s observations

foreigner in fields of gold
undisturbed, the shallow pits wake
the rows point toward one indistinct place
and my head is inclined to follow
in fog and rain, a steady flow
marks the season’s change
