1. Shy Rain

From the recording Undulating

In cart Not available Out of stock


Shy rain begs me to sit still and listen
Careful not to breathe too loud
Then you can hear the destiny of each drop

This one slaps a leaf
That one dances on the sidewalk
Some bounce off the porch
Onto a blade of grass
And slide down to The Happy Drinker

Such different ways to fall
And such different things to hit

The older brother laughs and teases them
Back and forth with invisible gusts


Left right fast slow sidewalk grass gutter
Slow smart poor rich confident agoraphobic
But always it’s the same simple cycle
But always simply sky soil sky
Sky soil sky
