[POEM] the last time we had rain 

the last time we had rain 

I can’t remember the last time we had rain

I said tonight

as the first drops fell from the sky

and the wind whipped through the foyer

in the kitchen, he made a pizza while I heated leftovers

with the front door open we felt the first autumn breeze

and the smell of rain on hot asphalt leftover from summer

this week we transitioned from one season to the next


it took too long

patience was never a virtue I possessed

even for the unpredictability

of weather

or whether we will or will not

but tonight a breeze brought us fall

and a rain took away summer
