Autumn Veil

Rum and Robots

Photograph by Valiphotos on Pexels – Poem by Joni Caggiano

raspberry birthmark rolls from under my nose
starlings move as one, painting a canvas vast
cold am I in red silk, my arms hug one another
shining in the light, I mold a small quilt of you
orange, red, and ginger a kiss of fall’s bequest
jubilation rides me on her ornate celebratory veil
until winter blows her gust and bares her face so pale
