Goodbye Season

Sweetness, I taste you.

the cold, frigid and warning

gives me warmth

cocoa on my lips

it breeds creativity she said

so I listened

because strong women

are here

and because I believe them.

new books

loose leaf touch to my dead skin

orange juice will cure it away

vitamin c they say.

in the early hours

I hear the train go by

wind lashing against the windows

the very beginning of sunlight

the very beginning of time.

this new chapter

makes all the days mine.
