Rain






……………………………………….Rain



……………………………………….Confusing the issue, the rain dampened
……………………………………….everything within view. The open door
……………………………………….invited it in, the bikes strewn through the
……………………………………….yard, the scattered cans, the wet detritus

……………………………………….all beckoned the water with openness.
……………………………………….Slickened concrete was crowded with hoardings
……………………………………….enticing rats, raccoons, mice, and roaches
……………………………………….to devour this apocalyptic feast.

……………………………………….Above, in the old theater windows next door,
……………………………………….the writing class stood watching the drama.
