Rain

02 May 2016 | 12:40

First-fall of language through the foliage down

to just a series of notes.



As children we are taught on which side of a mountain

precipitation tends to fall.



To go without purpose in the hills of purpose and learn,

making not a sound as it begins



as if, never having had an utterance for rain

a new thirst starts



descending from the ridgeline into the syllable of rain.
