the first bite of fall

poetry

this morning
i felt the first bite
of fall
as if sneaking in before
sunrise
testing the waters
of the atmosphere

i walked into its
sharp chill
eyes and lungs widened
as if breathing in a secret

by dawn summer returned unaware
of the thieving season waiting in the wings.
