Rain

 

The evening sighs,

Groans and unleashes a sonorous

Howl like a wounded beast.

Above, the grey regiments march

East heavy with ammunition.

 

The air is still.

The ingredients for a Shakespearean

Tempest are in the great mixing bowl.

A quick legerdemain

And the sheep are drenched

 

And the fields gulp down heaven's blood.

The trees dance and sway indecently

To the morbid samba-

A harsher number than yesterday's salsa.

 

But it's over as quick as a

Bad bedroom performance. Blue

Windows open in the grey canvas and stage

Lights from the empyrean theatre touch the sheep.

 

Baa! they sing, and coax day

To sleep
