Autumn Chill

With Daylight Savings Time having flipped the card, it’s now dark early and the lights around the neighborhood have come on, little yellow pools against the dimming twilight. With my window open I feel the cold, and down the walkway and across the fence in the cool of dusk a neighbor child calls for attention. I hear him (it’s definitely a “him”) often throughout the day whenever he’s outside, and the kid has only one vocalization repeated at various intervals and cadences; “Mommy, waaaaah!” It’s irritating as hell and I wish the neighbors would do something but they don’t, so I take the initiative and yell out the window, “Hey, shutup!” Damn.
