Brightshine fades to metallic gray.
Cell memories leak, then shrink
to shadowed dank under rotting leaves.
Winds howl with crystalled regret
that haunts goosebumped skin
for its capricious heat-sucking sin.
When Sol blasts fall’s curtains away
Cells remember and celebrate,
Dancing red-orange craven magnets.
