RAIN By Caitlyn Siehl


To pull the rain out of
someone’s back.
To do it in the daylight. On a
park bench. At the movies.
In the middle of Times Square.

To touch the drenched
spine. To kiss the river
in front of every taxi, every
yellow car in the city.
To drain it until you find
gold in them hills.

A new, gentle earth
nestled in the tail bone.
A wild, water love.
