city rain

thick clouds,
jumbled wires
around a pole

brown leaves dance

across windshields
honking, packed cars

oranges sit brightly

on a cart, almost radiant
with anticipation

banging doors

and windows
a woman rushes

into her balcony

pulling at
clothes on the railing

at the bus stop

people huddled together
knowing they'll be stranded

the crescendo, activity

breaks at its peak
into the first few drops.
