What matters about the weather
is the whether — Whether you will or
whether you won’t weather it well.
And what will reign? The rain or
the puddles, your foot half-
hoping the water will seep through.
Kaleidoscope droplets kiss
the strawberries’ seeded skin;
rain or shine, mine to tether.
by Dar Stone, Sherre Vernon, Julianna Cruz, Ai Kelley, and Cati Porter.
