The Rain

The rain
keeps me stuck
inside the flat,
thinking of
unrequited love,
thinking of
lonely death,
thinking of
scattered friends
and wallowing beside
a glass of beer and
an orange peel.
when the rain
stops falling,
I’ll be back outside
in the misty air
where I can roll on
to the bars and drink
the devil’s grape juice.
