A NOT-S0-SILLY ANTI-POETRY DITTY


the rain falls

in torrents as tears

and fills in the spaces

but doesn't quench

the prevading thirst



torrential rain

washes it all away from me

the piano, the picture frame

and the grandfather clock swim away

not having had any lessons



there's no place to put it

(those memories)

so mostly it uproots it all;

people and possessions and lifestyles

and anything that gets in its way



abhorrent portents of torrential rain

are the daily Oregon refrain

so...

P.S. ;

You might not want to move here.....
