There is a boy out there in the rain.
I see him sometimes out there behind the trees.
I look and there he is.
It seems he has been standing there for some time.
He looks up into the rain
and I see dark birds wheeling up there.
Their cry comes to me
and I look back and he is gone.
I feel the rain on the nape of my neck
and I realize that I am crouching there among the roots
staring at the sky in a puddle –
the sky deep in the splashing rain.
I have been going to the Brooklyn Public Library for some time now. I always enter by the children's section in summer. I have no child but myself. I grow bemused and want to stand still. I think if I grew still enough I could be a child again. There is a stillness in the library that dreams of the trees outside the window blowing silent in the wind - that dreams of the light. Stillness dreams. I would be as still as dreaming light. I would be a child again.
