Rain – Color Project

The last of the rain

hides under the chipped bench.

In a burrow ten feet away,

Summer and her bulimic brood.

 

Children stare at their faces in puddles,

faces framed by the

rainbow slick of motor oil

in the water.

 

What hallucinogenic heat

pushes a woman to the docks,

makes her surrender in

the family boat named

SS Hypatia?
