#70: Reversible Raincoat

(Rain Concerto: Sky and Fake Lake)

Sky and Fake Lake
Or Lake and Fake Sky.

A Concerto sky and rain lake.

A Fake concerto with rainy sky.

Two One Way streets,
or One Two Way Street, a reversible equation
One quick drenching of rain makes the whole world kin.

The raindrops are as big as umbrellas.

You can go boating
on the sky
or fly your airplane
through the lake

Is this what pneumonia is like?
Two unspeakable lungs
Each filled with fluid?
Where there’s no place for fresh air?

In the ruin of the rain
everything is sudden
and endless

With a long sadness afterwards
nourished by the damp
