i’d prefer to remember summer

cold november rain
early dark depress
remember sun strike warm

there’s someone of eye fire and feminine
lithe love ripe
laser burn thought

her man makes her ill with joy
intensity such happiness
how could i ever dare challenge

yet she in her feminine the feminine way
opportuned me her penchant for complication
i too love too much to dare acknowledge
for i am a destroyer

now cold november’s rain
she’s moved beyond
yet i all compare

it’s unpleasant
my necessary betrayal
i must ride

Ovid’s “Remedia Amores”
hard journey
i can’t be november forever
