another rain one

.
if i have enough
caffeine in my bloodstream
this once to rise and set and run
not away but long and far in the rain:
full and natural and pouring and floppy,
mindful of nothing but gravity,
touching everything greedily, boldly,
with thousands and millions of tiny temporary fingers;
everything everywhere feeds its falling-folly
with every offered surface
(uplifted or defensive) 
adjacent, juxtaposed: vulnerable and welcome
(like shy, hungry skin)

then i shall be compelled to martyr my good hair day.
