monday 31 august

yellow leaves
drift across
the library steps

I'm lucky that Seattle's budget deficits and cuts to city services don't usually affect me much, but closing the library for a week makes me want to organize a bake sale or put a tip jar by the check out counter or something.

Even is shut down. That's just indecent.

So, on another grey morning, with wailing ferry fog horns as the soundtrack, the last day of August is off to a melancholy start. Autumn is in the headlights.
