Wet

Rain came again
in swathes of summer sweat
trilling through the gutters
turning trees to liquid colour

You called from outer space
the line was disconnected
lost in my head I read
your questions, asked you to wait

another life time.

I see nothing but water
bubbling through the pavement
slick beneath my feet, surfacing
in my sheets, to drown me.

You appear in other’s faces
jump the gap between their needs
& the memories they fall from me
like this rain they’re all invading

leaving me soaking wet.
