RainWhenever it rains, I like to picture a single drop slowly forming inside a cloud until it becomes heavy enough to begin it's long descent to the wet earth beneath it, and when it finally begins to fall that drop of rain is like, "This is gonna be SO AWESOME! WEEEEEE!!"
And midway down, that drop of rain rasies it's tiny liquid arms, as a camera flashes and sends a funny picture to the souvenir stand, where 16 wallet size prints can be purchased for only $7.99. But the picture makes him look like that heavy kind of water with an extra oxygen atom around the gut, so he just buys some funnel cake and cries and cries.

and the feral burn of hunger

Offer psalms to what is holy,
whisper the name of what you love
as it bobs in the bleak mad sea.
Keep in Touch!
