September's Here Again

Sipping Coke and playing games... words from David Sylvian's exquisite song "September". The burnished month of mellow sunlight, fading like sepia, from summer into autumn, has arrived, full of pencils for school, sharp and yellow, and tinged with sadness, tinged with a remembrance of those July kisses, those August goodbyes. With September comes responsibility, but, like a first date with winter, the serious business of dark night is yet to come, there is still a dalliance on the sun's doorstep, a last tilt at youth.
