After Life’s Middle
On turning 61


Trees hang lower,
into the river, dipping
golden and scarlet manes.
Brighter than last year, I think—
maybe the brightest ever.

It’s good that things get better.
The Eno runs red and yellow
as I wade in waist deep,
out of the easy shallows:
was water ever wetter?
