last night i forgot to mention that it was pouring here, too,
harder even than the other day, just and appropriate
like the weather never is. i thought that maybe
i could open the door and blow away
and settle where ever i landed but
instead went back to bed and listened to the basketball
across the street, drunken whoops and beat beat beat on the pavement.
this morning the stoplights are all out.
politely waving others past, garbage flying through the air and
eye makeup, defiance, like eyes i dare you to do it again.
