Rain is Reality is

rainy

Rain
is reality,
Is what I’ve been waking up to.
The tap tap tapping on poorly-constructed
glass walls of empty picture-frame rooms.

Reality sucks
the very air out of breathing,
and in and out are just motions
my heart is just beating.
Again the rain
is reality beating and fleeting
but remnant,the puddles repeating,
and weaving and leaving.
No
the puddles are remnants of reality’s beating.

Rain is the reason
my glass walls’ hummed cries are repeating.
The tears have been falling,
and

weeping is seething.

Reality,
simply,
is rain repeating, repeating.

And halting
to a stop,

but my heart is still beating.

Reality is
the hardest rain on the coldest day,
with or without the flimsy umbrella.
