.up river.

yesterday it rained; a storm with a name
i forget
like the designer whose work we saw
last week

i walked from the car and halfway up
the hill i stopped. i never stop usual
i made a rule

i felt the wet coming through to my
skin so stopped

at home i adopted my pyjamas the
rest of the day while clothes dried
by the storage heater
i dried by the stove

it seems to me we both talk a
lot about heating
about our weather
here and there

it is real dark this morning
and while i know it will pass

have a headache and the usual
anxiety

i am asked what is this about
yet i have never discovered the
source

i best look up river
