23 Sep 2016 – Harvest Festival (Two Tanka)

1
This hook-and-ladder
backed up to their brick townhall
whose tall clocktower
waited for the pumpkin’s climb –
some phallic rite – I’m certain!

2
New England Yankees,
clinging to their father’s ways!
I guess the harvest
always fattened up real nice
whenever they did this stuff!
