Loose Leaf – by Erik Cowhey


Dead Leaves 

You fall

like loose leaf pages


sick of sages

advice an afterthought

in a battle raging


Enlightened by the constant wage

of lessons learned and tributes paid

of faces that have gone or stayed

like strands of hair

they’ve frayed


Like colored lines crossing times

past streets and towns and county lines

we strayed, we swam, we counted dimes

for wishes and for bottom lines
