Morgan Bazilian ~ Typical

The autumn returns
Predictably
But without cynicism
The giant ash
miraculous
for a week
And then
Seemed paltry
In comparison to the
Smaller cherry tree
Two-coloured
Bright red
And a sort of pink
And orange
Typical in every way
Sitting in front of the 1960’s house
Nothing special
A frontage road
An old pick up truck
Blocking the low sun
Children walking right past
Noticing nothing
As if the miracle
Might happen again

 

Morgan Bazilian’s last twenty poems have appeared in: Exercise Bowler, Pacific Poetry, Angle Poetry, Dead Flowers, Poetry Quarterly, Garbanzo Literary, and Innisfree. My short fiction has been published in Eclectica, South Loop Review, Embodied Effigies, Shadowbox, Slab, Crack the Spine, and Glasschord.
