TUESDAY: Three Poems

Watching the Rain

gather on a tired handrail leading to the subway,
the metal worn, possibly diseased, layered in years
of germs left by fingers and palms. I wonder if it sees
the water as temporary relief, even as it quickly rolls
off its smooth curves. I look deeper, searching
for the answer in the tiny drops clinging
to the underside of the silver cylinder. What I see
is a strange universe, a bizarre abstraction
of the city surrounding us, skyscrapers smashed
flat, mixing with the graffitied letters, spelling out
a bizarre tomorrow that somehow seems to make sense
in a blink of a moment just before it falls
into the obliterating oblivion of another anonymous puddle.
