sunshower, LES-style


the edges of the chrysler building
pressed creases into a premature
thundercloud hovering over midtown
and the lower east side got its
first taste of a sunshower
the vendors on orchard flew their
plastic canvases over precious goods
and a curious bead of sweat
formed on my forehead
i left it there not wanting to
rid myself of the first taste
of summer salty and clean
moist delicious love filled in the gaps
as the tourists struggled
with unfamiliar non-numbered
streets and i watched with
passive glee as mister big scary
thudercloud brought up the wind
and let us know that more of
the same was on its way
