Rain Was Not Always a Raging Metaphor

for loneliness, I tell you
it happened when you heard
that the bee died after the sting.

When in your head
you said: B is a letter
and an animal, and be.

And you had to stop there,
for a moment, between
the clouding sky

and your bare feet,
to shake your head to
really think.
