A chinook is a warm, dry wind that pours down the east side of the Rockies near the end of winter, tricking some trees into thinking spring is prematurely upon them. The trees may start pulling sugars from their roots and adding new growth, which can lead to tissue damage and/or death when the next cold snap hits. 

"Chinook Wind" is about getting asked on a date by somebody who had broken up with me the month before, and being so helplessly hopeful that I let her unseasonable warmth get my sap flowing, etc., only to get snapped when the emotional winter inevitably moved back in.
