NOTE: “The Story Of The Month” changes every month OR bi-monthly and might also have been featured in my collection DOWN INDEPENDENCE BOULEVARD published by MiddleRoad Publishers in 2017 and available on Amazon, or might be an Extract from my two novels RACING WITH THE RAIN and JUNTA or my collection UNFATHOMABLE AND OTHER POEMS
UNFATHOMABLE AND OTHER POEMS ©
Drizzles turn into a torrential downpour.
Beats on the zinc sheets, cascades
Off the roof. Rockets through the downspout
Into the steel barrel.
Like the sound of approaching rioters
The noise swells to a crescendo.
I hear the cries of the downtrodden.
The oppressed, the exploited.
Long after the rain stops the drops linger.
The cries remain.
