That Cheating Summer

That Cheating Summer

Autumn, like some out of town hussy

Parades her hot reds and oranges up my road

Until she lures my lover from our bed

And he abandons all that we have created together

Every flower and fruit and blade of grass

Color blind to the doom that follows such folly

Leading us all into the dark clutches of Winter

~Kelly Salasin, October 2010
