The Newish Poem Series About the Spring of 2006 Carries On in the Following Manner

March 7, 2006
It’s been really rainy the past few days and nights

And I’ve been remembering how much I like
falling asleep listening to the rain on the roof
Even though in our current home you don’t
actually hear the rain on the actual roof per se
there being those floors of apartments above
and so instead you hear the rain falling onto
the street and the trees and the windowsills

And that sound is quite different
than the sound of rain hitting
a roof just above your head
more roar and whoosh
less plink and plonk

but the sensation of comfort
of being swaddled
and sung to sleep
in a ship on a
stormy sea
