I Cannot Sing in the Rain (But Maybe I’ll Dance)

Aug. 24, 2018

I cannot sing in the rain
for I don't know what I'd sing
as reciting Tupac in full
     seems unfitting
and Sinatra's been done many times before-
I know
I'd rather stay inside
where the rain sings for itself-
     tapping atop my roof
where the chamomile in my cup knows
what peace this brings
and where maybe, alone
I'll dance
