#084: after the rain

today everyone had been walking around

like the sun had just passed them a note

saying “hey I like you too”

.

to watch the caved shoulders of yesterday

unfurl, with open-mouthed smiles

showing crooked teeth in all their glory

.

a pedestrian privilege I don’t take lightly

chatter amongst strangers who have

shared the same 1/2 mile radius for last 20 years

.

but today their retinas

reflected the blue onto one another

“hey neighbour did you see it?

.

if you can’t look up

look into my eyes

there are no dark clouds in the sky today.”
