What Rain Leaves Behind
As darkness coagulates,
raindrops hit the pavement with
sounds similar to a moaning child.
Calypso music plays from some far distance.
Unseen musicians conceal themselves among fog.
Cracked glasses on the sidewalk gather water;
their delirious owner wanders, chasing frogs.
The rain stops...
The moaning ceases, missing child posters
appear out of nowhere like misplaced relics.
Madonna and Missing Child -- Khalil Younes
