Outside the Window

Rainy Sunday.
The sky is the same
tone of gray it has been
almost every day
for a month.

 

Faded lilacs
across the way
do little
to contrast the
oppressive dreariness.

 

I wish
that the kids
had been out
yesterday
creating graffiti
with their chalk

 

so that we could
today have seen
a river of many colors
bleeding
    down
        the
           street.
