Filming The Drought Scene Is Held Up For Days By The Threat Of Rain
There’s rain that stays on the hands.
There’s rain that keeps you from voting,
and sometimes there’s too much damp in the cellar.
There’s rain that blows down the escalator
leading to the subway.
There are pieces of rain left on a jet.
And the rain in the first hour
is different from the rain in the second.
There’s mud tracked into a grocery store.
Then there’s rain found in the lungs of someone
who can no longer pray.
There’s rain that melts chocolate.
Then there’s the static of lightning
heard on the radio,
and the murmur of thunder gotten into the frame
of the bed on which two people lie, unable to wake.
