there are no rainbows at night

there are no rainbows at night                        September 5, 2015
most rain in the desert
brings life
tomorrow
all will be green

but tonight
rain is a kitten’s grave
buried under only
september’s seedy rag weed

tonight
rain
washes the last
scraps of innocence
down the overgrown ditch

tonight
rain
is god crying
over a shattered relationship
eve desires adam
but adam sees only dirt
and wears his thistles

tonight
rain
is running ink
and confused tongues
and scattered people

rain
at night
shows no bows
to bring to mind promises

tonight
rain
is a rip in the firmament
where mankind
has torn womankind
and she bleeds

About m

My ego wants to think I'm a writer but my heart knows I'm just another one of God's Kids who sometimes has words to say. 2 human kids and 3 feline kids call me Mom. Or Mooooooom. Or mewom, depending which you ask. I'm kinda-sorta busy being a student again; this time I signed myself up for a bizarre torture known as Graduate School. Theoretically in 4ish years I'll have earned some more nice letters to put with my name. Let's face it, I'm addicted to learning and probably need rehab to restore me to sanity and remove the obsession to read books. I don't remember what free time is but I think I like to spend it sleeping or playing in the mud on a river bank.
