The Fall

Russell Edson

  There was a man who found two leaves and came 
indoors holding them out saying to his parents 
that he was a tree.

  To which they said then go into the yard and do 
not grow in the living room as your roots may 
ruin the carpet.

  He said I was fooling I am not a tree and he 
dropped his leaves.

  But his parents said look it is fall.
