And On Thursday It Rained

Vintage Words


I could have lived
my entire life alone
but you, arrived late,

but in totality, real

as a drop of rain.


The walk was

shorter than expected,
filled with witty comments
and truths exchanged
at odd hours and even.

Refreshing as water

from the sky.


You died from the fury

of the streets. I remember

when my friend told
me you were gone. I
remember because

it rained on Thursday.





Author's Notes/Comments: 

I had a friend l, Alan Boltin, in high school that I really liked. He was shot and killed. I think of him from time to time.
