In November 

  
We felt 

the cold

air 

the frost 

in the mornings 

and knew 

that soon

everything

outside 

would die. 

We saved the geraniums 

and brought them inside 

because the sun is still warm. 

Sometimes 

I lay beneath them 

and close my eyes. 

But the cold 

has already 

taken 

me.  

And though it’s useless,

a little warmth still feels nice.
