Weather Break



Awaiting a stop in the rain, you’d propose it an
unstable avoidance strategy, although today’s
planned shopping trip survives despite the wet;
the last shower for a while is suggested by Met
Bureau radar, more lurking, & tells what’s been
and is yet to eventuate; ten dreary weeks this
iteration, enough to test bucolic endurance –
efface pastoral precedent, displace patience

Yet there’s rustic harmony in adroitly steering
between deluge & drought, like a test benignly
making grocery staples of vitamin C tablets a
panacea for boredom; you’d have to agree, it
is sure-fire resurrection if this wet scrapes the
bottom of the barrel far too irrationally clean
