i remember last winter


Sara Stepp

i remember last winter-


when everything was dead and gone
but we were just beginning

it was like the seasons

readjusted for us

i never like the cold
and with you i couldn’t feel it

i remember this summer-
you’d been gone for a while now

it was the middle of July
and i was cold to the touch

it’ll be December soon
and i’m afraid i’ll be numb to it

we may have rewritten the seasons
but as winter went to spring

things started dying,
you started leaving.

and i realized even we
weren’t immune to endings.
