Raincycling

It doesn’t
take long when the
rain hits.
You get it from the sky
from the road
from the spinning wheels.

The trick
if there is one
is not to flinch.

Enjoy your shower
and think of how our
skin is so
waterproof.
And getting so squeaky.
Even the grit from the road
can be clean
if you give it a chance.

It can be warm
or cold
but unless you’re tripping
you’ll be dry of it soon enough.
And just remembering
the dampness
smiling
as you pile your wet things
in the laundry.

And remember, too,
your approach to puddles
long ago
when you hadn’t learned
everything yet.
