The Rain Song

Rain comes down
After the rush
After the game
Someone, always someone has to
Drive home in the dark
Defeated

Whilst the victors go to Walmart.

You bring rain
You always God
You bring rain
And with it midnight lullabies
For an old insomniac like me

I understand the darkness
In his voice
In his shared sense
Of humor

How “finishing the job”
Could seem so reasonable
To a monster-
o-us–

She listens to the darkness
The rain
The lullaby for a child who would not
Ever
Relent

Now become a man
Face your god
Face your God
No wonder you do not believe in
One
When the other is something so unspeakable
