Why do they make fun of talking about the weather?

Talking about the weather is discussing time

Only half a summer until I lose you

I may get to see you in two or three rains

Talking about the weather can be a gap between two unknowns

Or it can be the bridge over the invisible chasm

between what wants to be said and what can be said

It’s been autumn in my heart, foliage keeps coming down and making a mess

And I’m looking forward to hibernating in the winter

All winter
