A SONG THIN AS RAIN

It’s the same mustard day
freckled with gasoline and din,
in shower a body broken
by wisps of steam.

Full of dark circles,
a coffee mug
sits by the sill,
wide open, expectant.

Light mows across the sky –
a mirror of colors,
iron birds with cloudy tails
point the way home.

There is a song thin as rain
over worried mountains
trapped in a latitude
of divided Gods.

Notice the onset of winter,
nervous turning of leaves,
how quickly the night falls,
consumes like love.
