on autumn

here she comes
bowling in, late again
unapologetic, slamming doors
throwing her rain-drenched coat on the hallway floor
yes, beautiful colours
striking markings
your beauty gets you off the hook
eventually
after the initial shock of your abrupt arrival
and a cup of tea
we'll snuggle down
wrap up all cosy
relish the dark evenings
together
