Rain patters steadily atop the tin roof.
A Canada goose sips from water puddles.
So Saturday morning slows time enough
Almost scary to feel, uncompressed, free
will; to ask, uncompromised, off
work; to love, because it’s best that way
A farmboy learns early on that dead
lines, like fence rows, are never cleared
up for long. Books unread, unwritten word
reasons enough for rain to fall & life goes
