Rain In The Streets
The intricate sounds of Orozco’s Guitarra and
the beep, beep, from passing automobiles fill
the warm air, and rise towards the burdened sky as
Rain materializes from thick grey nimbus clouds,
and falls onto the City; yet, the mood is not somber.
It is Sabbath.
The mid-April air smells of wet dog, and filth,
the smell of the City’s deep cleanse from morning showers.
