Autumn in New York

Near the end of autumn, the end of Scorpio, the end of the year - what better time for a new venture?

One day you finally knew
what you had to do, and began,

. . . .

as you strode deeper and deeper
into the world,
determined to do
the only thing you could do -
determined to save
the only life that you could save.
