Seattle

May 27, 2018

The sky is gray but it isn't a sad day
because if gray days were sad days then every day
would be a sad day here
in Seattle where rain falls day and night and in winter
spring, summer, and fall
and sometimes people wear glossy raincoats
and sometimes they don't because we are all used to the rain by now
falling from the sky in sheets,
sometimes heavy and pounding like silver-glinted
nails hammered by the wind,
sometimes moist and light like fingertips drumming on the concrete
which is damp and dark and spattered with puddles
that I love to jump in.
