Russell Edson: The Fall

  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.
