Fat Clouds, A Prayer - Poem by Glen Kappy

The fat clouds
are finally delivering
their promise—

their bloated paunches
dumping watery splats.

And trees
are dancing dithyrambics!
Flying green and wild flags!

And O
that it would not stop!

That tonight
the air, the streets
would be cool.

    The fat clouds
    are finally delivering
    their promise—

    their bloated paunches
    dumping watery splats.

    And trees
    are dancing dithyrambics!
    Flying green and wild flags!
