A Lammas pantoum


watching the sunset reflected on a billboard
thinking about summer winding down
I can already see the daylight getting shorter
however high the temperature climbs

thinking about summer winding down
even as it grips the land tighter
however high the temperature climbs

I see the turn towards autumn coming

even as it grips the land tighter
the heat of the dog days is a temporary thing
I see the turn towards autumn coming
measuring out the passage of seasons

the heat of the dog days is a temporary thing
I can already see the daylight getting shorter
measuring out the passage of seasons
watching the sunset reflected on a billboard
