Every night I listen to the rain,
Sometimes it falls gently on my rooftop
Other times it presses hard against my window
I sleep easily to the sound of rain
like the rumble of a downtown train,
drops roll down in narrow streams
like waving dreams under umbrella trees
African elephants
Crying whales
Who awaits this reverie?
I sleep easily under the sound of rain,
and see drowning men as heart broke sailors on a downtown train,
and their forgotten women like wavy dreams...they take shelter from a crying shame

rain and window rattling wind - best to keep sleeping

- I've been listening to Dylan, maybe I should fire up some Waits.
