AND THAT

by Serena Piccoli



In a brownbricked semidetached house
in winding Spring Road, Wrecsam
in a snaking row of brownish hours
a man staggered a pumpkin
in a damp kitchen.


And then
bricked silence continued.


It was too orange\too round\too calm for him.


And that
was just the beginning of Autumn.
