raining

“it seems to me that the rain is falling through my heart and causing it to crumble into ruins” 
―  gustave flaubert

andy was once, by the rain, impressed
he wasn't yet dressed
he whipped out his phone
stifled a moan
and, this video, is being, processed

                         afloat, i let my mind drift
    the ground below me, afloat
                         afloat, i needed not a lift
                                but oh my, how could my chair be
afloat

walking with the dead (again)

“there is a place in the heart that
will never be filled
and

we will wait
and
wait

in that space”

shouldn’t we care more

about those

who go

before?
