II. Our Woes, Our Days

rain spattered in the city by the sea,
spittle on my window and salt in my tea,
morning sands have long since slipped underneath
the lapping tongues of day’s tide, and woe’s me
on the porch now sunk and sloped off with the weather,
striking soggy matches under umbrellas
broken springs past, and while the cigarette
lasts, the woe’s a little bit better
stories down by the basement suite below
lie the wet remains of one such sweet woe’s
release, brown paper guts all expanding slow
in puddle rain on the patio
and in garden drain, whose water by muddy rivulet winds
its way to alley and is hard to find
in the tangle of shed roofs, powerlines –
a damp web plastering the gray paper sky
bloated with the dead dreams of yesterdays
past, let loose like prayers by porch-treading gazers
like me when we snuff out smokes in trays
and head back in to face our woes, our days


from Songs from the Rainshadow's Edge, released March 24, 2015
