Solemn, arcane,
Shooting, exploding
Into millions of pearls with the speed of cocaine—
 
Eroding, diluting,
The oaks are bloating!
They swallow the earth till the leaves are floating—
 
One by one the army will follow,
 
I must defend the rain.
 
Emphatic, dictatious,
Oh emperous one
For everything lives and dies in your vein—
 
Stock, automatic,
And overly done
To hell with applause for the rapturous sun—
 
Set the controls; deploy the clouds!
 
We must defend the rain.

(2013)
