out to the store
forsythia gleaming in the night
we chatter arm in arm and look towards summer

back from the store
a few drops followed by quite a few more
heads down chins dripping we walk home fast, faster

between corner and doorway showers lighten
I turn my face up to dripping sky
now that I can get out of the rain
wanting to linger
