I do not like the month of August

Written August 2014

August is solely a month of endings for me.
Here’s a shit poem I wrote about it.

August

I do not like the month of August.


They say the 8th month is the Sunday of summer…
They couldn’t be more right.
Though my birth month, I do not like
the month named for Augustus.
Always a month of endings, the beginning of the end,
and disappointment.

I do not like the month of August.
