day 26

the seasons changed so quickly here. before i came, i was nervous because the weather report for granada read 95° and up every single day. i only had maybe three things to wear for very hot weather. but by the time i arrived, the temperatures were already just topping out in the mid- to upper-80’s. by my second week, there was already the odd 78° day. now the breeze is cool and carries fallen leaves with it. autumn has come to sweep me out of the city.

tap, tap.
who is it?
it’s autumn again.
what does autumn want?
the youth from your brow.
i don’t want to give it to you.
i want to take it from you.

tap, tap.
who is it?
it’s autumn again.

—“canción,” federico garcía lorca (granada, spain), english translation by me
