Time Change

Standard

By Kathryn Gwun-Yeen Lennon

Fall back
into darkness.

This city becomes too big
and lonely again
distance builds ring-roads
around hearts.

Gold leaves haven’t yet fallen
off the white birch in my backyard.

Fall back
and trust
that tomorrow’s snowfall
will lighten the night.
