Should August be so bitterly cold?
Like that conversation we had
Last year
On the 26th ?

I think it should

Unlike that warm, sunny day
when I decided to tell you
how I felt
and listened to your words
like icicles
freezing any warm thoughts
that may occur
so in contrast
to the spirit of that warm, humid and gay August day
when we had that conversation

It is better this August
Things are as they should be
Icy cold
