Someone

Someone

Will he become someone else?

When the flame of autumn
is far behind and the warmth of
spring is yet ahead; when he's lost
in the palest of Januaries, surrounded
by some unfamiliar town full of
snow and strangers and they take
all that is his and replace it,
will he become someone else?

She says he already has.
