Dogs 2014

OCTOBER CHILD
(9/7/14)


seasons
really have
no regard
for calendars

solstices

equinoxes

each
is a complicated affair
with no predictable
beginning
or end

but early
in September
a moisture laden
cold front
from the North
changes something
in the air

Summer
has died

oh
the sky
will clear

and temperatures
will warm
before they chill
for the duration

but no longer
will the oppressive
heat
daily bend
weaker thoughts
to suicide

a corner
has been
turned

immortality
is again
a possibility
