It’s Been Raining

Drum comes in; steady and

Lacota-Sioux, ghost- beat strong.

She’s standing, tall and proud

Behind silk scarfed microphone

In seen-better-days snakeskin boots;

Little, gentle flex of the knees,

Sway of hips, shoulders, fringes

And everything between and besides.

Mellow melodies float in and by

On lazy foxbat wings.

It’s after midnight, it’s been raining

Again, yet her silver eyes hold me

Like golden angel’s searchlights

And I am truly lost.
