 Like summer in some countries and like rain
in mine, for nuns like God, for drunks like beer,
like food for chefs, for invalids like pain,
You've occupied a large part of the year.
The during months to those before and since would make a ratio of ten to two, counting the ones spent trying to convince myself there was a beating heart in you when diagrams were all you'd let me see.
Hearts should be made of either blood or stone, of both, like mine.
There's still December free - the month in which I'll save this year, alone.
