"Be yourself, unless you suck" -Joss Whedon

Back crooked to accommodate the slope of the trunk
I sit, limbs folded up to my torso
Above the ground

The wind catches my throat as it speeds to my lungs
Cold chaffing against tissues
A burning gulp of alcohol

A dead wind
Laced with the carrion of leaves
A dead wine
Stale, flat, hollow
Shrieking through the crisped wild flowers and grass

I huddle closer to the steadiness of the tree
Praying for winter
