Canoes And Galoshes
The scent of rain makes me feel like
getting nothing done - just lying all day on my goose feather bed
with pen in hand and the soft rumble at my sill -
thinking back to times like (and nostalgia's taking over)
that one rainy afternoon, when me and my girlfriends
dug up an old canoe from someone's garage and thought we could -silly little things-
ride it down
the slippery hill that connects all our houses.
Needless to say, the road ate up the canoe's wooden bottom;
but that day was drenched in our giggles.
And the scent of rain makes ...
surf wax and sunglasses,
tidal waves and tanning lotion
sunburnt sullen tragedies,
local SoCal surfers tune their slick,
smooth boards to ride the sea like song.
