seasons one

mid-october, mild bundles
  even inside.
the man from chicago, laughs.
while the east texan, first shivers.
the trees, hardly orange.
the earth, still warm.
taking longer showers
already, i plan my layers.

but in a few weeks
when dried fallen leaves
line entry ways,
and my coats only make
short, outdoor commutes,

cold becomes comfortable.
