hello fish

"it's like plugging in a toaster"
-voice over on an electric lawn mower ad

on a freshly stained deck
rain fell and swarmed in

quarter sized puddles
with pupils of pollen

we watched as the birds shook
the rain from their beaks

and searched the muddy grass
for those more unfortunate than ourselves

wrapped in a king's blanket we're attentive
to the bubble of the fish tank just audible

over the pelting of rain drops
and squawking of wet crows on the lawn

Hija, sounds as wet over there as it does here.. particularly liked the line about those less fortunate than ourselves! Indeed.
