In my opinion November is the dreariest month of the year but sometimes you can find a washed out, decaying, melancholy beauty in it as well. As Tom Waits has put it: "No shadow no stars, no moon no cars, November. it only believes in a pile of dead leaves and a moon that's the color of bone. No prayers for November to linger longer. stick your spoon in the wall, we'll slaughter them all, November has tied me to an old dead tree. get word to April to rescue me. November's cold chain made of wet boots and rain and shiny black ravens on chimney smoke lanes. November seems odd, you're my firing squad, November."
