Short Summer Skirts

It was October, but Margo was still wearing short summer skirts.

The cool breeze harshly hit her wobbly knees as she walked up the steps to her first class

She knew she’d have to retire her favorite skirt to the back of her closet soon, but she could get a few more wears out of it. 

Summer was her favorite season

It always had been, as it held the best memories.

Fall brought new air, scents, and feelings, but it brought winter too

And Margo didn’t like winter.

Therefore fall made her anxious, annoyed, uncertain.

She immediately missed the comfort of warm weather 

So she hung on as long as she could

With her short summer skirt.
