AN INVESTIGATION OF THE RAIN

(’82)

/////////////////////////////////>////////////|||>

– All around the yard,
puddles do impressions of
South America, Australia,
the Virgin Islands…

– The corner of the living room
had a leak last year,
and the year before –
another hole for my psyche…

– Emergency!
I see water on the bathroom floor
& look out the window…

– It’s flooding!

– I put on boots, get a shovel
& go outside,,,
the poncho of discontent
wrapped around my baldness…

– After an hour of shoveling mud
I get a blister on the palm
of my right hand,
but the channel I dug
opens up Lake Nacimiento…

– It’s coming down again,,,
for two weeks now
the sky has been doing #1
on the city.
