DPF / Ruefle

For the beautiful stuff that fell from the sky this past week, from Cold Pluto.

from Rain Effect / by Mary Ruefle, b. 1952

shining like satin on the black street,
on the tips of patent leather shoes, Hokusai’s
father who polished mirrors for a living, Hokusai’s
father watching the sky for clouds, Hokusai’s father’s son
drawing rain over a bridge and over the people crossing
the bridge
