"... brevity is the soul of wit ..."
- William Shakespeare

Rainy Daze

I recognize you
like an old friend
like an endless monsoon
that I revisit (like a headstone)
or rather revisits me
in intervals that stretch
throughout time
so that they seem
to be all one memory
here in this moment—
watching the way the water
beads on the window screen.
