Sometimes it rains twice


It will rain twice.

Certainly once,

From the lazy river

Up there in the sky.

Casually dripping into the mouths of the many,

(Undoubtedly impatient)

Earthly contestants.

And then a second time.

When the  residual rain,

Descended directly from the


Drips from 

Recently synthesized leaves,

And candy – striped

Parlor awnings

Onto weathered sidewalks.

And sometimes,

Fleeting streaks of reflected light,

Resemble ensembles of

Stray animals.

Dashing across the road

(Like swift ghosts)
