• heat of the yellow
    sun and icy tendrils of
    strong northwestern winds

    intertwine like the
    solstice gum you so enjoy
    it's your new flavor


    leafless trees are so
    uncommon in florida
    and yet they line the

    streets of this small town
    this is the year I fell in
    love and life's been weird


    I'm waiting for the
    day when florida's angsty
    rebellion is done

    and life can go back
    to normalcy and winter
    can finally leave

    and I can stop loving you
