November

Summer drunk on burn rot wine -
I'm a worm curled slick inside a plum
to await my wingless resurrection.

Come November,
I'm undone.

What a little mystery you have posted here. It reads very smoothly so I can read it several times with ease to consider again and again.

Dammit MZ. I read this and it stirs me. Makes me consider wanting to write again.

Well, I wouldn't call it beautiful, but very well done, MZ, but only to be undone in November? Not you.
