Orange grass

The grass is so thick
with autumn,
you imagine it minds
its lush green skin
dulled and dampened
beneath that shaggy,
burnt orange coat --
no doubt sweating.

There are so many fallen leaves
all flicked and flecked about,
like waves on an orange sea,
or butter icing on a cake,
they almost taste and tickle.
