Upon Seeing the First Fallen Leaves of Autumn

This is one of five poems I submitted to earn my spot in my upper level poetry class at the University of Kansas. I originally wrote it in 2010 in Dr. Matt’s Poetry 1 class at the University of Kansas, inspired by my Classic Japanese Literature class with Dr. Maggie Childs, also at the University of Kansas.

Little brown pamphlets
litter my weary green lawn.
I cast my ballot,
though it makes no difference;
the incumbent packs his bags.
