OCTOBER 16, 2011

Rain continues day and night
little reprieve, sealed in this
bead of water, aquarium of rain
9 days, 31 to go, deluge of
an overheated planet, ocean
empyrean, folded grey empire
seals us in soggy folds, a sea
spread above us, vertical vertigo
falls looking up, birds all hidden
over hatches in trees, feathers
doubled down, covering their heads
as we hold on securely to our beds.
