Content[edit]

The narrator is a man who knows that his lover has been with a guy before or perhaps cheated in the past. He feels the chill of an early fall when he thinks about it and when her "old friend" comes around. The question of whether the other man is just a friend or more torments the narrator and drives him to drink.
