TC: A New Light


File:Rain falling.JPG

The sandpapery candor of Bobby Dylan
Strikes a jejune note all of a sudden

Throw my ticket out the window
Throw my sneakers out there too

Mama said there’d be days like this
When rain pencils the sky

With an air of biological rigor
And visibility is grimly minimized

Tiny puffs of smoke speckle it
The harmonic spectrum is muffled

The tall white dog stands in the road
Shivering and shaking the water off

The scene makes the usefulness
Of an infinite tolerance evident

Too late I see the value of being
Resolute in a new light

Blessed are the
rainy-day women
on the lay away

much better than
death on the

said the artist
who don't look

Lie back on my big brass bed

(well, slightly mouldy futon)

and feel the love bites

of the fleas that have departed the cats

for greener pastures
