October comes in like an amateur dentist and leaves like a metaphor.
November comes in and hides whatever is in that bag. What’s in that bag, November? Tell us. We won’t be mad. We promise!
December comes in like a peacock demanding your attention and goes out like an intelligent, yet desperate, dinosaur testing the electric perimeter fence looking for a weakness…and freedom.
January sits there like the Wendy’s cup under a car seat from 2008.
