October Wish

What would it be like

to pocket this early fall sunlight,

to empty it by the bucketful

into a winter sky,

white as the frozen ground?
Or to save every elegant blossom
on the orchid’s now-bare stalk,
to re-attach it, as though

it had never fallen?
If I could shape the world,
so full of sadness and loss,

could alphabetize its confusion

until it resolved to sense,

then I could say 
I had made a difference.

>> The words for next month:
Locksmith, plush, and fracture
