Rain

Rain down on me
Broken hearts
Debts of secret scars
Broken pipes spewing unpaid
Taxes
Withholding affections
Roiling angers
Drilling deeply
While paint fades
Rain down
While children’s toes
Cramp in shoes too small
Ringing off the hook
Gone out of style
Bill collections
Run sharp claws
Through psyche
Raw from dental
Visits
Rodent infestations
Real life
Rain down one
The weight of one drop
Slides
Slides
Drips
drops
Down the pyramid
That life builds
Water
Only known solvent
Drops and drops
Rain down on me
