Raining straight down April 5, 2008

Raining straight down, looks like the wind has taken vacation

and I learned in New York City you don’t let the rain keep you in.

Grab the umbrella, a ball cap, or simply make a break for it

who cares if you get wet, how much, for how long?

Raining straight down, looks like semi-transparent curtains

with the drippy humidity that is fog hanging benignly between.

The mail truck pulls around and the motor breaks the silence

which is not really silence, just rain bouncing off gutters and draining.

Raining straight down, I feel like the forlorn kid wanting to play

but no one is outside and I feel forgotten in this place so I go.

Wandering up to the coffee shop or over to see how the park looks

newly painted, wet, and beckoning me to visit in my lonesome state.

Raining straight down, looks like the wind took a vacation.
