Rain

It rains at night

A place

it never rains

Dry LA

lets loose

Your pain

A premonition

Your youthful bones

turn stiff

and ache all day

 

A man who

loves the rain

 

but steel

stitched in

your bruised body

lets you love

no more

Moth

Will you always be here?

beating against my brain

Like a moth trapped

By a sickly yellow

back porch light

Left on to light the way

of a lover never coming back

or a false sense of security

Against the quickly coming dusk

Beating against that dying bulb

Till your wings,

Torn and tattered,

Tear off

to slide down

the wooden slats

of a creaking deck

Your funeral dirge

decaying and forgotten
