The shift in seasons
forecast but unexpected
too sudden to leave

the windows open
for even one afternoon
we just opened them

moon more visible
moon took off their mask too soon
atmosphere undone

will it be colder
tomorrow or will today
keep on repeating

what makes a season
so long end so abruptly
like it wasn’t there

things staying in place
things no longer a result
of telling apart

this might be all that there is
