do you hear it

rain at the window
do you hear the lightened notes
of hammers on skin

tunnels fade into waterways
paths are shallow pools
we laughed at the word

the understatement
all wet clothes,

and buckets
later he said he would have
fetched me in the truck yet
there is no vehicular access

don’t get wet, don’t get wet

we laughed
and carried on with the day patiently
ridding ourselves of the valuables
of no value

things from the past

so you know the pattern?

if the name has lowercase things
will continue a while and if uppercase
it has ended
