The Motive for Metaphor, by Wallace Stevens
thespacesamidlove: You like it under the trees in autumn, Because everything is half dead. The wind moves like a cripple among the leaves And repeats words without meaning.

One of the greatest things in life is driving alone at night with the window down and the music blasting. Really, no matter how cold it is out, it just always feels awesome.
