It Rains on Tuesday

little
…yellow
……leaves

hang amidst the green

We never could sit beneath this tree

Because it had
a big silver chain
around it

But we sat
beneath
…a million
……others

And danced beneath some as lovers

This day though
it rains
and you aren’t here

Hundreds of umbrellas float above faces

Hurrying to

hundreds
…of
……warm places

Unaware of one another or my eyes on them
The rain reminds me of many things forgotten

God,
…the Earth,
……things learned

and things taught
and

Besides, I’ll be late
if I keep standing still
