Exigency (for rainy days)

big wet

no surprises in that affirmation
searching soul is sure to find a
ghost or two in spaces deemed
revered by morbid fascination
freed restraint – but these are
not all binding things your fate
attests to circumstance, merely
chance expressed in vacancies

facts do not complain your use-
by date has passed and gone –
you planned it an exigency for
rainy days; it seems the scheme
brought great relief indeed for
some in need as welcome rain
