A Poem for Wednesday


Raindrops forget they’re falling.
Weightless, lightning-laureled,
they sit beneath the storm,
while round them upward
roars the rushing air.
Umbrella-holders crouch,
angry and late for work
and sorrowful,
cursing the raindrops
which are right on time
and free
and have never been dry.
