the rain plays taps

sky whites out with heavy cloud cover
as the rain slaps the windshield like an upset lover
there’s a wall of water fall that hovers on the horizon
like the broken sound you hear before you feel the car crashin
it’s not dark, just mute gray
as the rain falls on everything
and doesn’t let go
for ten miles or so
then an off ramp east
as the rain seems to cease
and a patch of blue shoots through
upsetting the doomy mood
it’s just another highway home
during a torrential down pour
one less
no more
