Lights flicker as students shiver while studying in their dorms.
The darkening sky and falling leaves dry allude to shadowy forms.

Bad poetry. What can I say? The weather is getting colder, the days are getting shorter, and it feels as if there aren’t enough hour in the day to do what needs to be done.

Whoever they are, they’re one of my favorite people at this time of year.
