Concede to the Velociraptor

On our first date

I reveal to her

I have regular periods

Of depression.


She asks

If those periods

Are caused by

Anything in particular.


I tell her

They start around

The third week

Of December

And typically conclude

Around May – June.


Her innate reaction

(a nervous laugh).

Then she exclaims,

“That’s not a period:

That’s a season!”
