Of course it would rain

from by Wolfgang Schaefer



Of course it would rain
the day that we gathered,
the day that we lied about pain.
The signs of abuse,
a flask in my raincoat
and uncomfortable black shoes.

Your brother was drunk,
the car ride was silent,
umbrellas lining the trunk.
The leaves on the ground,
stabbed by the high heels,
stuck to the feet of the crowd.

God I’ll sure miss her
everyone whispered
What a shame,
what a shame, what a sight.

We don’t know the loneliest wishes
but only that
some don’t get touched quite enough.

So smother me lover,
I don’t need another
Uncovered night.
