seasonal gratings 1

her kisses
felt like
riding in a hearse
with the windows
down
on a warm
autumn afternoon
where the leaves
have fallen
and
the trees look
strangely like
the varicose hands
of the dead man
in the box
in the back

there is
a bitterness
in holding her
like tea
left in the sun to brew
for too long
on a boiling
summer day
that no matter
how much sugar you add
the acrid taste
clings
long after
the ice has melted
to leave a puddle
of memory
on the table
