RAINSONG

I was caught
in the rain
on my way to
someplace I can't
recall.

Each drop of icy liquid
burned
my face.
good radiance!
My vision was
fogged awhile
then clearer
it became,
after a dozen seconds.
I liked it,
the way my soaked clothes
clung to my skin,
keeping me warm
from the cold they caused.
I lost them_
all those various million thoughts,
under the rain.
Somehow it seemed
they had escaped to
a desert of espoir
and all I was left with
were dream catchers,
dangling,
carelessly,
fearlessly,
hopelessly,
in half-witted rhythm
together with the thumping
in my head,
my neck,
my heart,
the music I felt in my ears,
tasted on my tongue
and heard with my eyes.
I looked around,
no one in sight.
What a shame,
the world had abandoned
such beautiful moment
and instead watched from
the safety of
their warm beds.

the absolute conservation of shades the trees
cast here- was totally me. he. he was the busy streets of Obalende:
the unrepentant conductors yelling,
'Yaba! CMS! Yaba! Yaba!
the circular circulation of human sweat waving
through the air like Oxygen.
neglecting the weaknesses of island Ajebutters and JJC pedestrians. at night i was the city of J-Town after 8pm.
quiet. eerily so.
soldiers securing fences of the selected few.
smoking stuff and drinking liquor,
with AK-forty-somethings to bring down any rebel who dared to equal. he was the busy streets of Lasgidi at night:
the traffic, in French translated to, "la circulation"
right up from Admitalty Way through the Toll gates.
Cars honking, drivers cursing, almost excitedly at each other.
LASTMA officials obeying the call to rip-off 'rich' drivers. …
