Litanies Against Dying, 22 (204.)

The sky poured rain on the earth today.

Atmospheric processes I only sort of understand
poured rain on the earth today.

Clouds who couldn’t hold back anymore
poured rain on the earth today.

Ancient deities enshrined on stone tablets
poured rain on the earth today.

Beings not of this planet who
took pity on us desert rats
after swinging by the Great Basin
poured rain on the earth today.

Government-controlled machines that I’ll never see
poured rain on the earth today.

Underground revolutionary groups
poured rain on the earth today.

A big bird with a full bladder
poured rain on the earth today.

Maybe a whole bunch of fancy
aircraft en route to the scene of a wildfire
poured rain on the earth today.

(Accidentally, of course.)

Ah fuck it, it rained in Reno today.

Best ten minutes of my day.
