umbrella

an umbrella
rests
next to the door
for as long
as i can
remember
i have left
an umbrella
resting
next to the door

i never
use it
when it is
raining
i just
duck my head
low
and scurry
like a rat
to the car

there is
another
in the door
of the car
equally
unused

this is a
parable
i suspect
to my
preparedness
yet inability
to stop
and think

or maybe
i am
the unused
fucking
umbrella
always
watching
the storm
yet never
reaching
my true
potential

i am
not even
close
to smart enough
to untangle
that
rats nest

but if you
ever need
an umbrella
you can have
mine
