AN INVESTIGATION OF THE RAIN

’82
. . . . . . . . . . . .

-In the patio
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 – – –
more holes for my psyche.

-I see water on the bathroom floor
& look out the window – – –

-It’s flooding!

-I put on boots, grab a shovel
& rush outside,
the poncho of discontent
wrapped around my ego – – –

-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.
