Random Poem:

Leaves and the Inevitable Season

All things fall
in October,
all the best
is mostly over,
for cold means cuddles
and rain brings puddles
and we'll have each other
until one misfires
a word,
or a hanging syllable
waiting for an end
that only pours down,
You're green,
then orange and red
And maybe I, or time
has become your evil bastard,
but you're only closing in on dead.
Because this tis the season
before that other fucking season,
that breathes in the unreason.
It's just that time of year, don't you know,
when we change all our identities
and learn to just let go.
