Insomnia #35



it rains and the rivers
reverse course

blackbirds fly
backwards

hands wave
at the sky

the thump of
Dylan’s Rainy Day Women

rattles
the shuttered window

upstairs the motorcycle
mechanic

lives with a rat terrier
and his wife

the needle skips

I can’t sleep
and wonder why

the streetcar
is always late to arrive
