(PAD #027) one time (midnight dancer)

wet
at midnight

the rain
comes down

the heart of winter
is a downpour

I lie
wakeful

I lie
no sleep

I lie with the sound
playing
in my mind

and I half-dream
I’d like to
stand underneath it

raise my head

close my eyes

fall on me
winter rain

I will dance
under your lines

splash my face

soak my feet

fall and fall
as though
old times

raindrops
in porchlight

drum beating
my roof

I will be your dancer
this one time

dance
and twirl

I
winter dancer
(one more time)
