rain smell

there’s lightning at my window

and thunder in the floorboards.

fresh rain smell,

as i walk to my car later.

i think i drank too much,

but my friends say it’s just enough.

you pull the sheets off my skin,

warm and humid

from previous sins.

i’m glad that you’re here,

but i won’t be staying long.

in a time that’s short and soon,

i’ll be moving right along.
