spring: the rainmaker



We walk home
and carry our coats: the evidence of spring
in cherry blossoms
and perspiration on my upper lip.
I have my umbrella (of course)
and wear my galoshes.

But the grass could be greener
and the watershed's only half full.

Tomorrow I will wear ballet flats with
my new teal skirt
so it can rain.
