fawn legs


fire lit.

Early fall light

flits in bits

through yellowing

beech leaves.

Rust from leak

patinas wood stove

while sodden wood,

just split,

barely burns.

on shelves

Like fawn legs,

the “hang” of each

handle unique,


iron axe head

to bite the rounds

and make

the cracking sound

of dry white ash
