Poem: Autumn Burlesque 

They dance on the leftover air of September

Still showing their full green gowns

Then changing their costumes into October

Wearing reds and yellows and browns.

They continue their act in the mid-autumn chill

Still covering the truth of their gender

But soon they undress and continue until

They end their act as naked November.

—Anthony G. Herles
