#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.”
