“The Leaves Have Turned Yellow ” by Sofia Kioroglou

The Leaves Have Turned Yellow

The 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 Tollway.
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
