it is beautiful outside.

rolls across the sky and the rain
quickens from a sprinkle on the
roof to rain
so thick it makes the air grey.
i am really ready for it

i've nothing to do all day but get wet
and watch the deluge form puddles
and rivers on my street.
days like this i miss being twelve,
when you're not old enough to
be embarrassed by wearing a
swim suit outside in the rain,

frolic in the flooding streets.
but i am old enough to have the
excuse of
to my car to get wet,

and i'll go

with that.
