in the middle of

in the middle of
the night, i am recording
the sound of
rain hitting the
concrete alley
behind our home.
other sounds
wander in –
the fridge, a
cough, the memory
of your voice
saying it’s late

at the tail-end of
a weeklong
storm is summer
brewing
the city sweats

all day, the rain falls

all day, the rain falls
in brooklyn like a fugue,
repeating the same
theme on its way
down – ledge, leaf,
rung, stoop,
ledge, leaf, rung,
stoop, ledge,
leaf, rung, stoop –
rubato-
ing and
accelerando-ing
together
with the ease of
a seasoned symphony

it takes more muscles

it takes more muscles
to make a rainy morning
than it does to make

it sunny – scientists are
coveting each other’s raincoats

on rainy mornings,

the rain recites

dashing through the rain,

dashing through the rain,
heart captured between a wet
hand on my waist and

avenue a, under our
red umbrella, two as one
