November

You came in like November wind
Chilly and soft
And smelled like Christmas
With the rolling snow on the porch
My stomach grumbled
For cookies and milk

So I put on my jacket
And went out the driveway
To find out that:
The late July rains
Have chased the snow down the pavement

I forget
That you were only November
As I took down the Christmas wreath
On a ladder I took down
The red lights, the green bulbs
Along with that store-bought tree
And stored them in a box
You swept them all
Out the door
Including my hunger
