rainy day

it rained today
harder than it has
since summer reared
her angry smile

i fell between
the raindrops as they
kicked up dust
on the parched earth
exploding into
mushroom clouds of
sparse hydration

to feel the cool rain
wash away the sins
rivulets of tar
streaming down my face

always half a second
too quick to feel
the gentle splash
metronomic in movement
shifting astride that
wobble in the rotation
unable to rectify
erratic irradiation
i am one with the hole
in the ozone layer
a street prophet in
pure solar magnificence

uncaring that it rained
harder today than it has
since spring sprang shedding
greens for brownish dismay
