Autumn Jazz
Deborah Hauser


Leaves flutter
& shimmy,
like fringed
newly bobbed
& banged,
themselves free
at the edge
of the dance hall bar.

Especially like the sound and image of "newly bobbed/& banged."

Great energy here. I have a friend who sees dropping leaves as a symbol for letting go. This is quite different. They land, motors running.
