warm bodies

in the fall
we fall in
with warm bodies
not lovers
because we want

as it chills us
to our bones
so we bone
just in time
to spring away
from too hot 
bodies come 
that have long 
grown too suffocating
but gave us warmth
if only for a season
or two

you’ll put up with
a lot
from warm bodies
during cold months
to keep from 
freezing over
to keep from
springing forth
