Rocking-Horse Winner

Day 25 PAD Challenge. Prompt: A "falling" poem.

falling, along with the leaves, unbridled,
golden, keys a-jingle in her
pocket, walking up, up, up,
above the skies, the rocking-horse

set in motion once more, winning
another trifecta on Riverdale Avenue, the
betting slips of the losers littering the

curb, along with cigarette
stubs and brown bottles halved,
angrily, in the dark, their

lovely necks so handy to hold,
hers, bowed over books, more
so, and still the golden

leaves fall, and fall, and fall,
leaving their imprints, wet, upon
the walk
