rainstorm lamentation

September 5, 2020



thunder ripples off the side of my house like a 
skipping stone / aloe vera gel 
smothers, sits on top of my 
skinless nose / secular gospels submerge me into a
spring-less seasonal depressions / as i rest in pools of 
tender acid, there is 
salvation hidden somewhere in the --- / 
listening to christmas carols as 
summer floods through my windows / 
my mind lives the next moment before my 
body does / so which is inferior? / i sit in the dark and draw
headstones onto the grooves of the ceiling / 
and somehow it looks familiar / like a 
destiny i subconsciously reject / i lay like a
twitching corpse, wasting time i don't have / white noise
pattering through my open window / so it is
raining like a funeral shower / and i wonder if 
this is another prophecy i will overlook / . /
