Fall Valentine

I know it’s fall in the desert
When it sounds as crazy outside
As the stock market on TV
All the birds yelling and
Bargaining at once in the trees
When the sun starts down
With their last minute
Requests and counter-claims
They’ve come back
After the dead silences
Of the summer furnaces
The cool nights come back
Bringing the rain and the birds
Flock after cloud after flock
Dragging us all painfully
Joyfully back into life
