AT THE LEAF DIVING COMPETITION

Entrant #1. Furled Yellow Leaf

launches,

four reverse

inward twists

in the river’s breeze,

a record for the ages

with a soft, balletic

landing:

9.5

 

Entrant #2. Wizened Orange Leaf

swan-dives—

but tangles in a

single strand

of spider web

stretched tree-to-

ground, waving

flag-style—

no landing:

3.3

 

Entrant #3: Unregistered,

cannonballs

like a falling

star,

bouncing

on the path with a

smack, revealing

its acorn identity:

Disqualified (pseudo leaf, faux leaf, leaf envy, nut—not a leaf).
