223 (who?)
I am lost November,
with the breath of winter
at the hairline of its neck.

I am the blood orange that
sours a little too soon.

A thirty day intuition
to a season of good will.

A blip on the side of
the road that melts easily
out of sight, out of mind.

An unremembered instance
on a torn index page
of a forgotten, spineless book.

I am lost November.
Remember me the instance
when you feel unremembered too.
I really feel sorry for November. It must be hard to be the precursor to December.

There are a number of reasons why I would not write a text like this. Lack of talent and poor command of English to name two... 

November is not exactly my favourite month either. Weather is usually somewhere between bad and awful and November itself is often just a passage of days one must go through after colorful autumn and before better things to expect in December. In short, pretty useless month although a month whereas any other... And from that perspective, November has deserved its place and this great poem of yours in its honor. 

So... I enjoyed your clever choice of words and images they made me think. For me those are two definite signs of a poem I will like and this goes to prove it again. Looks like I will need to read more of your texts, too... :)

Funny you say that, because I honestly love November more than almost any other month.  I do say I am not a fan of the winter months (which usually last December through May where I live, lately), but being able to usually wear light sweaters during November, at the tail end of fall, seeing your breath in the air, and still maybe being able to shove in another bonfire or two before it gets too cold... I have a lot of fond memories of November.... and it's that one time of year you can get together with family without the kids demanding presents or candy. Thanksgiving is by far my favorite holiday.

I suppose if you don't celebrate Thanksgiving you have a different view of it. :) I relate a lot with November. If makes me feel more wanted than any other month. We identify with each other. :)

That's true.... and I love that you identify so much with it that you wrote a poem about it.  You have beautiful work to begin with- probably because of your emotional connection.  I really respect that.  c:

I'm usually a lurking watcher, but this one caught my eye so much that I did have to comment on it.

Love it... Just simple love it. It reminds me of some Nightwish or Poets of Fall songs...
