Ersatz Rain - Poem by Bill Grace

NOAA declares a 50% probability
of rain this evening.
Outside I walk my dog -
a pleasant balmy evening -
the drop is felt on right arm
face upward, nothing else is felt.
Dog walk continues
dog stops to pee
another drop is felt
face towards sky
nothing is felt
dog hesitates,
deciding to go across street
a drop is felt -
sidewalk is checked -
no rain.
We proceed a football field’s length
rain is felt -
rain is not seen -
ersatz rain
with a 50% probability
of real.
