Pools

We huddled against a brick wall
waiting under green luminescent lamps
blessed with cover of an overhang
watching the rain fall.

Holding our breath
hoping the wind would remain at bay
long enough
for us to find a new life
or be ever so slight
that we might not notice it
heaping drops down our back
crafting pools
so eloquent
we might never know
we’d drowned.
