    I sail along these edges immortality
    It’s in
    extension of the legs, knees maybe, too,
    their curvature derivative of muscle


    whoever said leaves autumn silently
    so falling?
    no, rather, crash
    insistent of a suicide.

    the wickers burn, stale smoke trails off
    the ground, damp, rich smell of

    and ever

    chill air smoothes itself into my skin.

      October – One of my favorite months here in New England, and your poem somehow captures the same feeling of continuity, as leaves fall ,decay, and bring about a new growth season. And for those of us who love their colorful beauty in autumn, you’ve portrayed the sense of loss as they fall.
    I do have some questions;
    In S1 L1 did you mean to say “immortal’?
    In S3 L1 I think you should say “who” not “whoever.” And in L3 shouldn’t it be “crashing” to match tense with “falling”?
    Also in S5 shouldn’t it be “every”?
    Now I don’t know what autumn is like in Singapore, but when I read this, to me, it was autumn in New England. Of course there are no Wicker plants here, but otherwise I could have looked out my window and seen what you’ve described –Beautifully.
