Few passers-by notice the house behind trellised jasmine
Do wet butterflies dry their drenched wings under a blue moon?
Her thick towel does not dry while winter rains pour down.
Clammy dampness everywhere, drains spouting like broken dams.
This weather is inopportune,
worse than Indian monsoon,
El Nino's the one
that has me undone,
I wish it would go away soon.
