food festival, you are only
allowed to choose one

t-minus one day till

t-minus one day till
autumn – a slice of fluffy
japanese cheesecake

in our bellies, a closet of
fall layers waiting to be let out

rabbit, octopus,
or lamb – for a family
to eat joyfully

together, it’s important to
acknowledge what’s off limits

when one robin meets

long shed and waiting to be
shared between fearless explorers
