First on the ears of millet —
The autumn wind.

Last of August, 2020

A mild day moves in after steady heat. We take our seats outside at a café table for two, order a California ale made with guava, hibiscus, and strawberry. It’s the cherry-peach color some leaves become in the fall.

Across the street, people queue up in six-foot intervals in front of the post office, where two outdoor mailboxes with pull handles have been swapped out for ones with slots. Here in Connecticut, we’ve masked and worked remotely for months, stayed at home. We put a new ping-pong table in the foyer to take our minds off the daily deaths, the mass graves outside New York City, our friend who took her own life in April. She left just an abrupt note asking her friends to forgive her, that she had had a full life. Her favorite color was orange.

another round . . . 
letting our masks slip
a while longer
