She thought of all the drugs she'd need to make it through the day
Decongestant, analgesic and some she wouldn't say
Along with one to keep destructive stomach juice at bay
When asses (as they tend to do) begin to loudly bray.

By the light of a street lamp I saw
a spider creep into the craw
of a crabapple tree on its web
as the summer sun started to ebb

and shadows began to unite
becoming the framework of night
encompassing all as we crawl
inexorably towards the fall.
