In the hollow rain,

When the grey above

Leaks colors from my steps,

You comfort me.


Silence is never absolute.

Sounds always seem

To seep into our solitude.


Wisdom slowly accumulates

In the cracks left over

From our disasters.


The summers of my Huckleberry youth

That were slowly swept away

Lie golden in my memory

And still color me today.


I hold this hammer in my bloody hand

And bring it smashing down.

Will lightning flash and thunder roll,

Or is it just a hollow sound?


You have a good, deep, wonderful heart

Down to the twinkling of your toes.

So why do your sweet words desert you

When all of my feelings show?
