All Summer It Rained

It rained every day that summer
we stayed on Lacewood
I remember the street outside
became a torrent around dusk
when the sewers and stormdrains
atop our street spilled over
and ran downhill
seeking a covenant with the ocean
It stormed and the thunder spanked
the lonesome midnight air
and you said -
'I've almost forgotten warmth
or what it looks like when
the bed is half in shadow-
and I never want it any other way'

We checked our arms for spiders
We chased our spirits through the night
We searched each others back
