when it rains

Sun, 07/30/2017 - 12:03 -- rm18

when it rains

all that it takes to make the world interesting

it to roll your shopping cart over a storm drain

or sewer grate

or whatever

and stop and look down

(see the water running below?

it has seen the world… )

and stop and look up

and stop time.
