in an alley, at midday

the weather began to turn
mercury rested, rock bottom
fire raced through the valley
leaves crumbled to fall

it’s always startling
how time runs away
how few minutes there are
in an hour or a day

and i wanted to recall
the kiss in the alley
the days before autumn
in earnest did burn
