Almanac Questionnaire-NaPoWriMo-Day 16

Fall full of hyacinth,
a Gothic Spanish tradition
like a bearded dragon swimming
in the deep end, scraps stained
with coffee marking that spell
out “the XX was here” and “Emma
Watson is part of the conspiracy
theory where everyone will end up
dressing casual during the childhood
game in the backyard of everyone’s
dreams” and Hayley Williams will peek
through your lighted window to see
the news headline blaring on the TV:
“Trump says his favorite Bible teaching
is an ‘eye for an eye’, an eye of a centaur
with the look that says “I might ask you
a favor, say ‘Good Night Moon’ for me”
and instead of finding the moon, you’ll
find the crashing of trash in the sky like
needles piercing the outlines of snowy
mountains, all of it litter, junk, life’s debris.
