This Is How It Happens

 

This is how it happens
as it does
when the weather turns,
when all of a sudden
the leaves have changed color.
Where did the green go?
Here comes the snow.

When all of a sudden
the sleeping on your shoulder
and the generosity of their words
have been replaced
by friend sleepovers
and one-word answers.

It changed
while you were staring
at the second hand
waiting for it
to reach bedtime.

The clock was moving after all.
