Rain came

to the pavements

worn by the heat of feet

to the airconditioned offices

fanned by waste

to the parched verge

trying to breathe the fumes

of air and to the patch

with its valiant venture

though droop

was everywhere.

 

Birds swirled first

sensing a shift

a definition of relief

a bird-flight of

performance.

 

Rain came then,

a curtain call

that turned an encore

into a show

which staggers on

tap dancing

into night
