Alienation

temptations to
step ahead
and just crush them
under boots
abound

who has the back
of autumn leaves
discarded by trees
alienated
from natural habitat

migrants travel
in hordes 
risking life
and health
to reach home

the leaves had once
provided shade
these hands built
infrastructure 
you live and breathe in

if you feel the pain
of alienation
in social distancing
extend empathy
think of autumn leaves…
