    It was one of those days where the sky stays dusk-dark all day and the rain drizzles down like water wrung out of a rag, dirty and somehow staining the very air.

    The air exhales, and the winds pick up Tossing the treetops, spirals of fallen leaves Dance across the parched earth And thunder snarls across the sky. Tossing the treetops, spirals of fallen leaves All taken up with the all-reaching wind. And thunder snarls across the sky, The gray-clouds-...
