Dear October, I know you gon’ miss me
For we been together like Shell toes and crisp jeans
Fresh “J’s” with team issue fleeces
Burberry ties with the logo secret
Gimme couple months, I might just sneak in
A couple words and like peaches and herb
What did I learn:
This was a special, insightful, peaceful, tumultuous, tiring, joyful, cleansing, busy, traveling, special, loving, arguing, exploring, amazing, life adjusting, month…I can only do one a year.
Keep some things private, especially when they’re unresolved.
I wish one of my nieces was back in the states.
