Signs Bloom in Autumn
by Maria Elena B. Mahler

Against glass
front stores display signs

signs for help

One by one they disappear
with cold hands

shelves grow empty
like the branches on trees

and front lawns
holding signs

for rent
short sale

bank owned.

On corners now
they stand

on two feet
the same signs

eyes bulging
wanting help.
