Interstate 55 on an Autumn Eve

Horizon flushed
as her sun left,
hitting the field
hard in exit;

longer night falls
to cool warm sky,
Indian sun
soaked tired fields.

Cicada’s last
dog day swan song
hustles farmers
to beat first frost-

in rush of wings,
black birds fly low
picking over
corn combine’s dust.

Pink reflection
settles to soothe
the shorter day
summer left us.
