October: Kingdoms Rise and Fall But You Go On and On …

October: Kingdoms Rise and Fall But You Go On and On …

“October, and the trees are stripped bare of all they wear, what do I care?
October, and kingdoms rise, and kingdoms fall, but you go on and on ….” October, by U2

“Five a.m., at the burnt end of a fierce October.
It’s dark, quiet. I wish I were on the road,
traveling, a thin paper cup of coffee
hot in my hand, dawn coming up
on the horizon …” Migration, by Deborah Miranda
