The Leaves Fallen

She sat

She thought

She winced at the pain

She scratched at the pavement
searching for a grain of improvement
hoping for the mask to be removed
The leaves twisted in the sun
The birds hid from the disruption
The cat perched on its hind legs
She sat
She looked for a new vision
The pebble rolled towards her
The brick crumbling
The twigs cracking as she stepped forward
Her boots clicking with indecision
The cat disappeared
The birds long gone
The leaves fallen
