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.
