An Anniversary

It rained the day you died,
a hot, fast, and lavish rain.
It's supposed to rain today,
we'll get the backhand
from the latest tropical storm:
stiff winds and furious showers.

I will tell myself when it comes
that you're speaking to me
in the rain, that you're saying
hey, it's all right, kiddo,
I'm looking out for you.
