Now rain rattled the
roof of my car like
holy water on a coffin
lid, holy water and
mud landing with a
thud

though as I listened
the uproar
faded to the stoniest
of silences ... They piled
it on all day
till I gave way

to a contentment I'd not
felt in years, not since that
winter I'd worn the world
against my skin, worn it
fur side in.
