Walking in the rain in the city
Rain spread nail polish
over the city
and glittered on
the sidewalks,
urging the flat world
to perk up to life.

But in the hectic traffic,
the people stacked like dominoes
about to tumble on one another.

In frizzled kiosks,
tabloids turned
to paper boats
and went a-sailing
in the gutters,
under haphazard boots.

Because the traffic was hectic,
the people stacked like dominoes
about to tumble on one another.

Rain imposed authority
over the umbrellas
with the pitter patter feet of
poetry's thrust
for some change
in focus.

Still the traffic was hectic
and the people stacked like dominoes
about to tumble on one another.
