Fools in the Rain

Photography ~ Diana Matisz


that day
we stood in the rain laughing like fools
my hands grasped the rough wet edge of your collar
smelling of warm cotton and summer
your hands pressed against the small of my back
finding the shallow your lips had unearthed that morning
there was no light to discover us, no dark
to lure us down the rabbit hole, there was only
us
two fools in the rain daring the world to see us
hoping it wouldn't glance our way

that day
when we discovered words were dispensable
and the us could be found in tangents and ley-lines
that were always there, but never seen nor crossed
that day
when our shivers were really heat
and our heat cast light on a path
to nothing and everything
we stood in the rain laughing like fools
and took the path to
us

  2. Sometimes, its wise
    to be fools
    especially when it rains

  3. You expressed in words what your body and feelings felt at that moment in time, the two of you fixed on each other, the rain coming down, cooling your heated bodies that cursed the sunshine for just a little bit longer. I loved the rhythm of this piece, simply wonderful dear poet.
