The universe must be a teenage girl. So much darkness, so many stars.

Knowing too well it’s night

Rain crashed windows streaming and weeping

Puddles drifting, traffic sleeping

Hot sun clouds give way to

Jets of pearl hail gone like words

Silent lightning fighting with sunset

Like a glass bead necklace on a drowned lady.

Cars sift dreamily like tranquilizers

Dark blue streets are laced with spidery sounds

Slippery thoughts are sweet like apple butter

Giving way to uncertainty.

Come again, thunder

Rock me on the marble

I call my planet.

I love the rain, how it makes the streets shine and the house feel cozy.

"It Will Be Good." (complicated semi-spiritual emotional story.)

"Upon his bench the pieces lay
As if an artwork on display
Of gears and hands
And wire-thin bands
That glisten in dim candle play." -Janice T., Clockwork[love that poem, dont know why, im not steampunk]
