Free car wash day

Rained today
Is raining
Never does that
Never

When never meets present
I find myself falling with it
Standing at attention
Greeting thy gods pee upon my retina

That was the position in the Army when it rained
staring upward, unblinking
flinching frowned upon
Cast your sight skywards wet warrior

Now, anytime it pours
My souls drift outward
upward
face to face with what is coming down

When/if
Reminds me of old things
lost forgets
sad songs and slow waltzes

Arms presented
Pain neglected
Gaze heavenly
Look up
