POEMS :

RAINFALL

 

Rainfall

Is waterfall

From the seabed

of  the cloud

 

Rainfall

Is diarrheal stool

From the flaccid anus

of the sky

 

Rainfall

Is a sneeze

From the catarrhal nostrils

of the wind

 

Rainfall

Is spittle, drooling

From the inflamed mouth

of the sun

 

Rainfall

Is the dripping of tears

From the dazzled eyes

of lightening

 

Rainfall

Is an effluent

From sweat-drenched make-up

on the pancaked face of rainbow

 

Rainfall

Is a jet of urine

Spurting deliberately

from the phallus of thunder

 

In rainfall

Torrents of words

Drip from the mouth of heaven

Into a sea of men

Exhorting peace,

Condemning wars

 

The waters of the earth

Emptied into the sea of cloud

Thro capillaries of vapour

To their source must return

In rainfall.
