Poem for 23 August in the Danish poet Klaus Høeck's '1001 POEMS'

        the dog days are now
        over the grass is
changing colour bleached with chlor
        ine and is getting
        ready for the words
of the text the poems are
folding in on themselves it’s
        summer still yet it’s
        already autumn
like a double stop from frantz
        ignaz biber’s ros
        ary sonatas
