good riddance to october rain


I don’t remember autumn being this wet
she said

I blinked my eyes and looked outside
thinking to myself what an
absurd thing to say

it’s not that wet I said it’s just an illusion

it’s wet enough they canceled tonight’s
baseball game she said

real men play in the rain I said

you’re an idiot she said and walked away

I raised my glass and made a silent toast
to rid the world of absurdity
and rainy october nights



october two thousand fourteen

  6. Another good one. You are so consistently excellent. I like that you add narration. I have a blogger page too and can’t figure out how to add audio. How do you do it? Thanks. J

    • Thanks so much, Jimmy. I actually pay WordPress a small annual fee to be able store audio on my blog. I use the iPhone voice memo app to record then email it to myself for uploading. Nice to see you visiting and commenting here, love your IG photos!

      • Oh, I didn’t realize your blog was hosted on WordPress. Thought it was stand alone on Blogger. I will look into that. And, thanks for the compliment. J
