The Equinox

The Equinox 

Trees blush, then undress 

before the first frost–– 

a last caress of Summer 

slack pulling taut as we 

turn back the clocks, small 

gods cultivating time. 

A letter from home 

vultures our visitors 

with wild words and 

nowhere to go, ghosts 

rage like white flowers 

hardened in the snow. 

Matt Schultz is the author of two novels: On Coventry and We, The Wanted. His chapbook, Parallax, is available from 2River Press and he has collections forthcoming with Beir Bua Press and ELJ Editions in 2022.
