for me

I entice the water
to come down

there’s a cloud up there
full laden

I stand beneath
and do a dance
end with my hands up
pleading

come down

I make a gesture

come down

I hither
with my hands

come down

the rain stays up there
just as it started
but
I entice the water
with my dance

and I entice
the water with my moves

yes
I entice as though
I am so sure

but the water

no no

the water

uh-ahhh

the water
no
it won’t
come down

not for me
