Before Global Warming, There Was Autumn

I hadn't seen these in years.

I didn't understand where they came from, just that they came.  The playground trees would change colors and boom! These would appear. 

I told the Mariner we'd split the end and with a bit of spit, and boom! You had a rhinoceros nose.

The Mariner said, "oh I think that's just Your New York you did that in."

But, no it wasn't.  It was Our New York.  Where we played Ja-Spa-leaders-allowed or falougie or mach a naim or kugelach.  Those words, those games, those days were normal.  

Like what autumn used to be before the world changed it.
