Wilkens Avenue Wishes



It’s raining

Big deal

You know the story

Dark clouds pouring out tears on window wipers

Slippery tires and sleeping mothers

Hungry hunters of youthful hearts

under the crowded bus stations

But there’s another story,

much less common

that I witness in the rain

“Captured this morning after a shootout with police.”

“Car crash leaves a family slain.”

I look

out the window of my heart

and into the home

of wandering eyes

And as the drops

drip down my shivering hands

I ask it all to stop
