Why not take a little walk?

I went for a walk in the rain
just to hear the raindrops
ticking off the top of my umbrella
just to feel the puddles
seeping through my tennis shoes

From vacant houses with
dark window eyes
broken cement steps for teeth
the smell of rotting boards
earthworms
wet leaves and pine needles

From houses with life in them
the scent of laundry detergent
spaghetti and meatballs
lights blooming brightly
behind glass
as the air goes thick and dark
