The leaves have turned yellow

by Poetry and Literature by Sofia Kioroglou

imageThe leaves have turned yellow

the skies scowl at me

lobbing thunderclaps and lightning bolts

drenching me with torrential rain

The scowl deepens

as I enter Attica Toll way.

The heavens have opened fire

shooting bullets

on the metal roof of my old sedan.

Lightning flashes again.

The sky’s camera shutter speed

dazzles my windscreen wipers

blurring my vision

as I crash into the sturdy steel barriers
