Homemade Firewood

There are no leaves this Autumn.
We stole them all
and burned them for heat.
Every hour on the hour
until precious maple
, and birch,
could be loaded for the slow dark burn.

A letter to Martha Stewart (Holiday)

Dear Martha Stewart (Holiday),

I was pleased as usual with your latest Halloween installment. If I had any artistic talent at all, your ideas would have been ├╝ber cool. Instead, I'm going to smash, like, 40 pumpkins on my deck and tell kids that I was attacked by hobgoblins. What a terrible waste of food in a world of such unbalanced prosperity.

Yours in uncertainty,

Morton Milton, Esq.
