A bad night at work
Made good by the rain
Just off my back porch.
Vinka raindrops run vines
Green white against black night
While sky leaves patter earth.
Quiet night delirious sweat
Skeletons' bones dry wet
Only this rain dries them off.
Tabasco and oil grill red
Avocado moves the night
The moon is not there.
Rain. Rain. It is eighty yet
Tabasco night of habenero eve
I need more peppered rain.
A few haikus to answer you
You did not even ask for them
The night alone and the hard day.
