Season's Greetings

Crisp apples arrive
ruggedly handsome
dusty scruffed cheeks and
unassuming ease

Pierce through their dura mater--ah!
explosion of autumn colors
in my mouth
sweet as the afternoon harvest sun
tangy with the bite of chilly mornings
better than Dunkin Donuts' pumpkin muffin
with cinammon spice coffee
stupid artificial flavorings of the season
