After the Rain


We sit alone across the table
Unable to account for the storm
Driving through our lives like tourists
Slowing to point at the sight of us

    JA-I've been there, in that moment-when a relationship becomes like a strange road movie, where we end up in existential diners, truckstops or theme parks.

by Robert Browning

Take the cloak from his face, and at first
Let the corpse do its worst!

How he lies in his rights of a man!
Death has done all death can.
