Downpour Priorities

Sudden rain moves across our conversation

Out the café window.

My eyes turn round,

Following the watery sheets,

Or dreaming again.


I feel your eyes on my face

Yet I don’t turn to see,

Held, instead, by wet passersby.

Except from the corner I can feel

How deeply you can look.


And I can’t turn now, fearful

Break your gaze, then what?

But I should, easy enough

Forgetting fears vanish simply

when faced

So why not now?



Before I realize I missed it all.


What did you see?

See me missing it all?



Watched rain rolls away

Down across the field,

Quiet again.
