August Storms

There will come a summer
where it won’t stop raining, and
everything in your home
leaks, and you–who once
learned to love these August storms
like second life–you will only
be able to smile, to boast
how good you are at catching
all of this water, parading over
wet floors with wet, cupped,
empty hands.
