Saturday afternoon

November 5, 2011

compelled to walk in the rain

compelled by its steadiness,

its directness,

its swift, wet, downward purpose
across the world people are sitting exams, painting bathrooms, eating dinner, making love with people they love, changing nappies, dreaming of cats, learning to ice skate, inventing cocktails and otherwise constructing futures…


here in the land of small joys

the square is covered with a graceful, thin flow

the lights flicker on the carousel

long low rolling Mediterranean thunder makes the umbrellas tremble (black black red black blue black rainbow rainbow black)

the coffee is quick and strong, and the change is correct

there’s no need to move faster
