Sunday storm

More than a trickle

more like a glubbing sobbing human

woman watching a bunch of birds

in rain while the hills turn super-green

and she whispers something like

“I’m barely getting through the days”

but the sound is lost to wind

and the carousers down the street

remark about the early forsythia

and wonder when’s dinner

while the woman counts

between contractions

that aren’t actually happening

but like the hills like the birds

like the long blue Sundays,

everything is getting wet.
