A Walk in the Rain, Casey Corcoran

Effervescent Cassiopeia, chained to some cold throne in the sky

seemed too far away to affect me in this lifetime


The sidewalk cracked under the weight of my body,

my brain must have weighed twenty pounds that night


Quicksilver synapses and bitter thoughts


The clouds came abruptly, without warning,

the moon never had a chance

just hanging there in a noose of stars

engulfed by those malevolent water machines

it was surely drowned by now


Laying upon

a hospital bed in the sky
